Freda is a free program for reading electronic books (ebooks) on Windows Phone. It reads EPUB (DRM-free), FB2, HTML and TXT format books. The program offers customisable controls, fonts and colours, plus annotations and bookmarks, and the ability to look up dictionary definitions and translations, and (new feature) text-to-speech reading.  Freda understands EPUB formatting information (bold/italic text, margins and alignment) and can display images and diagrams in books.
Freda can get books from on-line catalogs like Feedbooks, Smashwords and the Gutenberg Project. Or if you have an existing book collection, you can use SkyDrive, DropBox or Calibre to share it with your phone. Freda can also download books from any website and from email attachments.
You can download books and keep them on your phone, so you can carry on reading when you don't have network connectivity, and you can pin your favourite books to the Start page.
The manual is at http://www.turnipsoft.co.uk/freda .

    Love the app.

    My favorite reader app which replaced Amazon kindle thanks to a variety of visual customizations. Specifically, the ability to set a particular background for daylight and night is notable. Font customization is intuitive and other controls are easy to navigate through an appealing environment. I'd love to have more improvement in annotations and bookmark options when using smartphone. On the tablet it's almost perfect. I'd add support for more reading formats.

    Easy to use

    An excellent eBook reader for windows phone. This app displays the book well and can be customized to set what a tap or swipe in a given area of the screen will do. I love that I can start up Calibre on my computer and download books from it to my phone wirelessly. They can also be downloaded from your OneDrive (Skydrive) account and Project Gutenberg.

    Love This app. Love the updated improvements. Keep it up!!! It runs a little heavy though.
