I wrote earlier about a E-Book found on Archive.org and the various file formats that are supported. Besides Acrobat Reader that reads the PDF files there are several other Free E-Book Reader Programs Available for PC and Mac Below is a list for those who (Like me) either can not afford a Kindle or another E-Book Reader Device and want to read The Books on My Pc/Laptop/Netbook or Mac etc..
There is also FBReader which is available for Windows and Linux based systems. Fbreader supports several E-book formats but the main one is Epub which is used at many libraries across the U.S. To Get FBReader go to FBReader’s Homepage
There is the standby of Acrobat Reader that supports the PDF file format. and can be downloaded at http://get.adobe.com/reader/
Well Hope this is helpful for those of us out there that may want to skip paying 99 dollars or better for a Electronic Book Reader Device and don’t mind using what we have to get the many free and paid for books out there.
Well peace for now
