Books are just one of the many things that have gone digital in the last few years.
While many will argue that nothing can beat holding and reading an actual book, it also cannot be denied that ebooks are convenient and make it easier for you to have more books without worrying about shelf space.
Not everyone owns an Amazon Kindle device or any kind of tablet that can make ebook reading a breeze anywhere and anytime.
That does not mean, however, that reading ebooks on laptops and desktops have to be easier said than done, especially since there are ebook readers available for PC.
Here are some ebook readers for PC that you can download for your reading pleasure:
