Mobipocket Reader Desktop is an application that allows readers to gather all their ebooks into one location for easy reading, but it does much more than that. It organizes your reading library, collects RSS feeds for easy viewing and lets you upload personal documents in one location.

Ebook Format

The Mobipocket Reader Desktop lets the reader gather any kind of ebook formatted document from mobi to epub to PDF, which is rare with many ebook readers. You can bookmark, make notes and highlight any portion of the book for easy reference later. This can be great for text you want to refer back to later, or a profound passage you'd like to read again. Readers can create custom hyperlinks in the text if they wish. This is a terrific feature when uploading your own work to the Mobipocket Reader.

Organizing

All your ebooks, news publications and self-published text can be uploaded to the Mobipocket Reader. All the items can be organized based on varying criteria like title, author, publication or genre. You can add your own tags in as well for easy sorting. If you wanted to sort by easy reading, relaxing or stimulating books, you could add those tags.

Syncing

The ebooks can be transferred to any smartphone, tablet or other device for viewing. Mobipocket recognizes that a device has been linked and will prompt the reader to transfer books. It detects the type of memory on the device and will add to the removable card first. All the notes, hyperlinks and annotations from the Mobipocket Reader on the computer will be transferred with the book. No information will be lost. It all syncs together for ease of use.

Display

The reading experience is like others of this type. The font can be changed to a larger or smaller size based on the users preference. It can be changed from paperback size so the read can be experienced like a paper book. There are also menu options for full width, column display and automatic, which will choose the best format based on the ebook.

Dictionary

Mobipocket Reader has a one-click dictionary for looking up words that you might unsure of during reading. It gives options of the Oxford dictionary, Merriam Webster and others. There are even bilingual dictionaries. Readers can open a search box to utilize the dictionary for any word of which they'd like to learn the meaning. It's very convenient for offline projects.

Pros
