Calibre is yet another eBook reader for Mac users. Although you may not find the user-interface to be the best in the world, it is still a good reader to get on your Mac. It allows for conversion of eBooks, as well as editing eBooks so you can add your content right into the book. You can even add a couple of notes about the topic you are reading.

The app is available for a number of platforms including Windows, Mac and Linux.

3. Kindle for Mac

Kindle has proven to be the best tool for reading books, and maybe that is why Amazon thought they should make it available for the large population of Mac users as well. Lo and behold, here we have the Kindle for Mac. Comprised of all the great features of the original Kindle, the app lets you explore all the books you have purchased from the store and the ones you have been keeping on your device before you came to know about the app.

The furthest page read allows you to pick up the page where you left off the last time you were reading the book regardless of what device you had with you at that time. If you ever come across a word you do not know the meaning of, you can try the lookup service and it will tell you the meaning of the word. With a number of reading modes, it makes reading much simpler and cooler than ever.

4. ehon
