epub reader on PC

I m looking for a epub reader which has a good text rendering as adobe digital editions.
The major pitfall of digital editions is that i can't double click a word to select, and this is essential to me coz i use lingoes a lot.

Thanks for your help

Google be your bud. (I'd never heard of it, either.)

You can change the font in the Calibre one, just change it to whatever the other one is using.

my thought would be its more of a rendering than a font problem.

The one i found really as good is sony reader library, but it wont work with lingoes

The Barnes & Noble NOOK apps for PC & Mac are fairly good at reading epub, if you're willing to put up with the heavily branded NOOK and NOOKbook store.
N4PC doesn't support covers for non-B&N books, but I'm fairly certain the dictionary and Wikipedia lookup are quite convenient. It's well worth a look...

If you use the Firefox web browser, I would recommend the EPUBReader add-on. I find it provides me with the most options when reading on a PC.
