Browsing, Adding, and Reading books using Book Bazaar Reader:
The app’s interface is kept pretty simple. It consists of a library where you can add numerous eBooks from multiple sources. There are options for browsing books, adding them to library, and deleting them from the library, but they are very basic and not very graphically appealing. On the other hand, the option for reading books is pretty good. While turning a page, the app gives an animated effect which gives a feel of turning the page as in real life.
You can add bookmarks on pages for later reading, highlight a section, add notes of different color on the highlights, and share these highlights via email or Reddhub using the Windows Share Charm. Performing all these operations is pretty easy, but at the same time the app also provides a step by step instructions on “How-tos” within itself. This makes learning the app more easier.
When you open the app you’ll be with the Library Screen (above screenshot), where you can add ebooks by clicking on the Add Book button. This button appears under the flyout which pops-up when you make a right click on the library screen. After that all you have to do is make a search for the desired book from the different open publication websites’ catalogs and add them to your library. One good feature of the app is: you can also see a brief description of the book while browsing.
Reading is pretty easy. Simply click on the book which you want to read, and the book gets opened. To flip a page just click on the very end of the page or you can also click on the top corner and drag the page. The app also provides different page setting options like page color, font size and color, line spacing etc. This further improves the book reading experience. You can alter these settings by right clicking on the page screen.
