Icecream Ebook Reader is a free eBook reader software that comes with dual pane interface mode to read eBooks. That means, it lets you read two different pages of added eBook simultaneously. It helps to open ePub, MOBI, and FB2 format eBook files. Where there are many similar software that can read only ePub or MOBI files specifically, this software is quite useful. Apart from this, it provides different view modes, like day, sepia, and night mode, that makes reading eBooks more interesting.
Icecream Ebook Reader also helps to store all books in a library, so you don’t have to manually open eBooks again and again from PC. It also stores your session and restore the last read page whenever you will open software next time.
Its beautiful interface with night view mode and dual pane view is visible in above screenshot.
Note: Icecream Ebook Reader interface also contains section of Formats to sort eBooks. There you will find other formats as well, such as: PDF, djvu, and prc. But at present it is able to open ePub, MOBI, and FB2 formats only. I wish it would support all the other mentioned formats also with newer version.
