Basic ebook manager and reader from Adobe

Ebook readers are becoming more and more and popular these days, and this gives developers a good reason to create ebook-related software like Adobe Digital Editions.

With Adobe Digital Editions not only can you have your ebook library perfectly organized, but also read your favorite ebooks on the computer. Adobe Digital Edition lets you add new items to your library and distribute them in different categories ('bookshelves'), read a selected book on the screen with several viewing options, insert bookmarks in your book and easily move around pages.

Adobe Digital Editions is also meant to work together with online ebook stores and public libraries, enabling you to manage the books you buy or borrow directly from the program. You need to find these resources by yourself though, because Adobe Digital Editions only provides a few sample books to download.

In all, Adobe Digital Editions is a handy ebook manager with a nice interface design, though I have to say if fell off my expectations: it doesn't have many features, and it only works with two formats: PDF and ePUB.

Adobe Digital Editions is a nicely designed yet simple ebook manager for PDF and ePUB ebooks.


  • Easy to use
  • Sleek interface
  • Organizes ebooks in categories
  • Support for bookmarks
  • Works with online ebook stores and libraries


  • Only supports ebooks in PDF and ePUB
