Every year on April 23rd, it's World Book Day — the perfect occasion for promoting literacy and reading as a hobby. Though, in times like these it seems like people go for more fleeting, ad-hoc content preferring to flip through webpages as opposed to reading whole books. In any case, this year the day before World Book Day marks 400 years since Miguel de Cervantes' death. As the most important reference in the history of Spanish literary prose, we've chosen to celebrate his genius by coming up with the ten best eBook apps for Android. On these apps you can read, download, catalogue and collect books from the comfort and convenience of mobile technology.
You can use this app to do pretty much everything that you would on Goodreads' official website. You can rate the books you've read, look for new books using the search engine, apply genre filters, etc. And of course you can access your virtual shelves at any time.
One feature exclusive to the app allows you to use your device's camera to scan a book's barcode, which naturally gives you all of its information. Once you do it, you can add the book to your shelf, rate it, write a review, or add it to your 'to-read' list.
Goodreads is a great application for avid readers. Not only can you keep your books perfectly organized, but you can share your thoughts and recommendations with thousands of other users.
