Bluefire Reader is a free eBook reader software that lets you add and export highlights and bookmarks to an eBook. So when you find something important, you can highlight it with default yellow color. And to add some useful information, you can select a particular text and add the note. The next time you will open the same eBook, it will show all the added notes and highlights separately at the left section. You can also export your notes and highlights as plain text file.
This free eBook reader supports ePUB and PDF files. You can view the thumbnails of all the added books on its main interface and then select any book to read. The software has many beautiful themes and night mode to help you read the book with full concentration. For each individual book, it also shows the reading percentage. So pretty good features come with this software which make it a very good competitor to other similar software.
