How to Read Books

Read In Ways that Work for YOU

Bookshare® members can read on a wide range of devices, including computers, laptops, Chromebooks, tablets, smartphones, assistive technology devices, and MP3 players.

Books can be read directly from a web browser, or with a compatible app that lets you find, download, and read directly from within the reading tool.

We recommend reading your first Bookshare ebook on the web with Bookshare Web Reader. Then, explore reading with compatible apps that provide additional reading features.


Read Your First Book

Bookshare Web Reader is a great way to read your first Bookshare ebook, or all your ebooks. Simply go to the Bookshare website on a Chrome or Safari browser, find a book, and select “Read Now.”
