  • FBReader is a popular (30+ million installs) ebook reader. Works on iOS, Android, Windows, Mac OS, Linux, and Chrome OS.
  • FBReader supports many ebook formats, including ePub, mobi, fb2, HTML, RTF, plain text. The primary formats are ePub and fb2.
  • FBReader uses its own book parser and rendering engine. The engine is lightweight, fast, and highly customisable.
  • FBReader is not open-source since 2015. For developers, we offer FBReader SDK: a library for building own ebook reader.

FBReader for Windows is available for free from the Microsoft Store and from this site. It works on Windows 10 (build 17763 and higher) and Windows 11.

We have not officially packaged it for earlier versions of Windows. You can download and extract the package on your own risk.
