ebook viewer

HI,

I have some plain text format books, and would like to have one software can read this format only and hope the software is not too big.

I like the interface of Calibre's ebook viewer, but calibre also provides function of book management and the package is too big for the text reader.

Any idea we can shrink the package and make it work.

Or any another software can provide similar function?

Thanks and happy holiday.

Denny

FBReader can read plain text files, and many other formats.

Note that FBReader is highly configurable, and you may not like the defaults. Click on the cog wheel icon to customize.

What system are you viewing the files on?

If it's Windows, and all you want to read with it is plain text, I suggest WnBrowse. It's a freeware Windows text viewer application that handles ASCII and EBCDIC (IBM Mainframe) text files. Colors, fonts, and line lengths are configurable. You can configure an editor to be launched from it to edit the file you are reading. (I like the free, open source Notepad++). WnBrowse can also read text files stored in Zip archives, and can be configured to use your preferred archive utility to open them. (If the text file is the only thing in the zip file, WnBrowse can use internal unzip code to get at it.)

WnBrowse adds a right-click context menu Browse selection to Windows Explorer to make it easy to open files for viewing.
