Martview – Digital Reading For Your Computer!

We’ve blogged about Nooks, Kindles, and Kobos, and while they’re all great products, what if you just want to read a book on your computer? It’s true you can download apps from Amazon and Barnes & Noble that will allow you to do this, but I found another program that works great and has some amazing features!

I invite you to check out MartView, a digital reader that allows you to “Read on a computer like never before. Flip, slide, scroll, pinch, circle and more!” I’ve been using it for a few weeks now and I really enjoy it. I have a growing collection of books in PDF format. Reading them with Adobe Reader is okay, but MartView really brings a PDF to life!

MartView also offers a library of free books and magazines you can download and read at your leisure. The colors are crisp and clear. This absolutely free program is also enabled for touch screen monitors.

A unique feature of MartView is it will allow you to convert your pictures into an attractive photo album and publish them on the web! I really like this feature!

You can learn more or download MartView by “clicking here.” Have fun!

Adult Ownership of eReaders Doubles In Six Months!

The PEW Research Center reports ereader ownership among U.S. adults climbed to 12% in May, 2011, up from 6% in November, 2010. This is the first time ereader ownership among U.S. adults has reached double digit percentage points.

Other interesting results of this survey show ereader ownership in households with less than $30,000 annual income remained flat at 4%, while ereader ownership grew among all households earning more than $30,000. The highest growth was 12% to 24% in households earning more than $75,000 a year.

In the education sector, ereader ownership declined among people with only some high school, dropping from 5% to 3%, but more than doubled among college graduates from 8% to 22%.

This survey also compaired ereader ownership against tablets, and PC ownership agains laptops. If you would like to look at the results, please “click here“.
