Free Epub Book Readers for Mac OS X

It’s convenient to have books to read on the iPod Touch. The iPod Touch is portable and capable of storing thousands of ebooks. Ebook reader apps tend to offer options to adjust the screen brightness, font faces and font sizes, and text and background colors. A good ebook reader app could let you bookmark pages, take notes, and look up definition of words without leaving the app.

I switched to the iBooks app on my iPod Touch after the Stanza app became unusable after I updated to iOS version 5 on the iPod Touch.

What happened to Stanza? It appears Stanza was bought by Amazon and has since died from neglect. Read and find out how and why: Amazon Killed Stanza.

Since Stanza’s death on iOS, I’ve been using Apple’s iBooks app. I disliked iBooks app at first because, compared to Stanza on iOS, iBooks felt sluggish. But the app has since grown on me.

Page 1 of Henry David Thoreau's "Economy" on the iBooks. Apple's iBooks is a great app for reading books on iOS. But how do you read epubs on Mac OS X?

Despite the portability and other conveniences of reading books on an iPod, when I get home, I still wish I could read my book on a bigger screen. Is there a way to read ebooks on Mac OS X?

Read what apps I’ve found for reading epubs on Mac OS X after the jump.

How to Put the Tilde on the Eñe on Mac OSX, iOS-Style (Lion only)

Placing a tilde on an “n” is a cinch when you’re writing by hand. All it takes is a flick of the wrist to add the tilde on top of the n.

On a typewriter, it was easy if it had the eñe built in. On a Spanish-style typewriter keyboard, the eñe will typically appear between the L and the comma, so no problem there. Otherwiese, you type the “n,” press backspace, rotate the carriage halfway up by hand, and type the tilde (or hyphen if the keyboard doesn’t have a tilde). That took a little more work, but it was a straightforward process that was obvious enough.

On computers, on Macs, Windows, and others, the fastest way is to rely on a keyboard shortcuts. The problem is, memorizing so many shortcuts can be a pain. To bypass the need to memorize or look up a shortcut, some people took to keeping an eñe on their clipboard. Or when they needed the eñe, they’d look up “España” on the net and add it to the clipboard from there. These were roundabout methods and really just a little bit crazy.

Memorizing keyboard shortcuts to call up the eñe on a computer keyboard can be a pain.

There must be an easier way to type words like “señores” and “señoras,” “señas” and “baños.” On a Mac running OSX Lion there is an easier, less confusing way to write eñe.
