BookReader 2.0.0 released
October 20, 2016

I have released version 2.0.0 of BookReader. BookReader is a powerful application for Windows and Linux which allows you to read ePub documents. It has bookmarks, book search, stats, a portable version, color schemes, a clean design and more. You can download it from the BookReader site. It was written in HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript using NW.JS.
