Get flash to fully experience Pearltrees
eReaders aren’t just portable displays to read your eBooks on the go. The difference lies in the display technology. Where normal displays use liquid crystal-filled pixels, and beam the image on your retina with what is in fact a big flashlight, e-ink technology uses no additional light-source. In fact, they really use an ink-like set-up. The result?
Windows/Mac/Linux: If you've got a virtual pile of e-books but no good way to organize them, Calibre is a feature rich e-book manager, complete with Cover Flow-like looks and network sharing. Whether or not you have a portable e-book reader, Calibre is packed with features to help you organize your e-books. To start, you simply tell Calibre where you store your book files. It does a pretty good job pulling the necessary information and self-populating, although you'll still find yourself making occasional edits, like swapping the author and title fields. If you're a LibraryThing user, you can also hook into that account to populate the fields. Calibre has a Cover Flow-like browsing feature for skimming through the covers of your books.
