Download Google Books to PDF and EPUB

Sometimes you may need to print Google Books or read them offline when you don't have the internet connection. Besides, most people love to read books on mobile devices (like iPad or Android tablets) or popular e-Book readers (like Kindle or Kobo). GooReader allows to automatically save books and magazines to PDF files and read them offline. If EPUB version for a book is available on Google Books, you can download it as well.

Create Local Library, add Bookmarks

In GooReader you can create a local Library, containing Google Books and PDF books, located on your computer.

Besides for all books you save to your Local Library bookmarks are automatically created, and the next time when you open a book, it opens on the bookmarked page.
