Love reading books but short on your pocket money? Don’t worry, you can easily download free apps for reading books online. These apps are available on the play store and are among the highly rated ones. You simply have to create your account with all your details and get going.
Believe me, some app books are quite addictive! Moreover, you will find books from many new writers. The best thing is you can have a chat with the writer. It is always fun to know the person behind the book, right? So, let’s get started with the list.
Wattpad has got to be the most popular online reading app on the play store. It started with a community of teenagers and young adults. But now it has transformed into a community of people helping each other. If you are a writer looking for a platform to publish your work for the world to read, try Wattpad. You will surely find many supporters who will encourage you. And then again, you will also get to read thousands and thousands of books for free.
There was a time when I would spend my whole day on Wattpad, reading books after books. I like fanfictions a lot. Being a fan of the Harry Potter book series, reading the fanfics of Harry Potter was like reading another book from the series. So, yes, you will have a good time on this app.
Another popular reading community. I feel it comes second to Wattpad. The Goodreads has several paid books. However, you will surely find many free books. If you are looking for recommended books, then try out this app. It is more like a social networking application for all the book readers out there. You can discover new books, follow writers, write your reviews and even join communities.
What I like about this app, is its algorithm. Once you select your first book to read, which will be something you like! the app will start recommending books which you will like to read. Most of the app reviewers have given a thumbs down for its user experience. It doesn’t have the best interface. However, the book reading communities are the ones that make up for it. If you have your Amazon account credentials, just log in with it and your Goodreads reading list will show up on the Kindle.
If you have been reading paperbacks or hardcovers all your life, then transiting to web form may be difficult. So, for them, I would suggest the Serial reader app. It is much simpler compared to the above-mentioned apps.
Newbies and senior citizens who are getting started with online reading apps should surely check this app. This app provides you with classic works of literature. It will provide 20 minutes bite-sized read ups for its users. So, if you have trouble looking at the phone’s screen for too long, then this app is best for you.
Moreover, if you are new to this book reading world, this app may be a great start. It will help you build your book reading habit slowly. As you will be forced to read it in bits almost daily. Moreover, understanding the English language of the 19th Century may be daunting, so the app segregates them to make things easier for you.
