Reading books on a computer. How to read books on a computer?
I welcome all fans to read interesting and useful books, as well as those who are just interested in how you can read books on a computer. In the past two years, I myself have really loved reading, but in school it was completely different. Every day, at least an hour or less, I set aside useful material to read, it can be on the phone, on an e-book, on a laptop, on a computer, or just real printed books. At least anywhere that comes to hand, I read various books on all devices.
In general, the love of reading books came from my computer. When I began to sit down at my computer in debt, learned to make websites, make money on the Internet and so on, then I started reading books on my computer and I liked it. I have already read many different books, tried various programs! That is why today I will talk about it.
How to read e-books on a computer?
In what formats to download books?
What programs to choose for reading books on a computer?
You will find answers to these and other questions in this article.
Friends, in order to read books on a computer, we need at least two things:
1. The book. We need books that we will read. Immediately answer the question, where to get e-books? The answer is simple, where you take other files: music, films, programs. For example, you can ask friends to drop books on a USB flash drive if they are reading books on a computer. Another option that will suit most people is to download the necessary books on the Internet. And the third one is to buy this one. Yes, on the Internet for a long time you can buy those books that are sold on bookshelves in stores. Only you can buy on the Internet not only a physical (paper) option, but also an electronic version. Bought, paid, downloaded and read. But it seems to me that most people will use the second option, that is, they will download the necessary books from the network. And there are a lot of them on the Internet, and you can find almost any.
2. The program. And, of course, we need a program to read books on a computer. Books come in many formats, as well as songs and films. For example, if you like to watch movies, you probably know that they come in the formats AVI, MP4 and so on. So e-books on the Internet are also uploaded and sold in different formats.
Now let’s decide in which formats to download books, and what programs to read them to install?
In fact, there are a lot of programs for reading books! In order not to get confused, I’ll tell you about the most popular utilities that are worth installing and which books to download in the future to make them easy to read.
There are three of the most popular formats that you will come across when downloading books. These are books in PDF, FB2 and DJVU formats. So there are not many of them, everything is very simple and a separate program is needed for each book format. It is not difficult to guess that we will need to install three programs so that we can open any book on our computer.
To work with books in PDF format, we need to download and install Adobe Reader. It is free and easy to find through any search engine.
To read books in FB2 format on your computer, you need AlReader. It does not require installation, it needs to be downloaded on the official website http://alreader.com, unpack and use.
And the last type of books that are not rarely found are in the DJVU format. Typically, scanned books are packed in this format. That is, books that are “stuck” in the scanner and converted into electronic form. They get DJVU format. Very often, due to a poor-quality scan, books in this format are poorly read. To open such books, you need to install the Djvu Reader program. But I recommend you to pay more attention to books in PDF and FB2 formats, as they are perfectly suitable for comfortable reading.
Total! Install the programs: Adobe Reader, AlReader, Djvu Reader and calmly download books in the formats: PDF, FB2, DJVU.
Congratulations, now you know everything you need to have in your arsenal of knowledge when reading books on a computer. Install the three programs described above and read books on your health.
Sometimes books are found in other formats. It can even be the well-known .DOC format, which is easily opened by Microsoft Office. But if you suddenly come across a book that does not open in more than one of the programs that you have installed, then solving this problem is easy.
We go to the search engine and write: “how to open a book in the format …”. Instead of an ellipsis, do not forget to indicate what you are looking for. And we get a lot of information on our request.
Read books on your computer, spend time to good use!
