"An e-book is a pet who can take care of itself. Electronic book. No need to bring big and heavy hard-bounds just to broaden your knowledge. E-books are the cheapest means of learning." - AllWeLike on E-Books

An enthusiast once said: “We think of an eBook as an intelligent pet.”

All We Like agrees with that. An e-book is a pet who can take care of itself. Electronic book. No need to bring big and heavy hard-bounds just to broaden your knowledge. E-books are the cheapest means of learning.

If you are an e-book enthusiast who wants to bring your device where ever you like it to be, All We Like suggests that you grab an iPhone or an iPod touch now. E-book reading has been made easier and happier on iDevices. For one thing, the App Store offers a wide variety of E-Book readers to choose from. Most of them came in free.

Here, All We Like pulled together a list of five free apps that offer e-book reading abilities on your iPhone. So pick the one that suits you, get a title downloaded, and drift off into good-book bliss.

1. B&N eReader

A free and useful app from the famous Barnes & Noble. The full version comes with five free “classic” e-books and a free copy of Merriam-Webster’s Pocket Dictionary. Any titles you download are stored in the cloud, so you can access them from a Mac or PC, as well as different handheld devices.

2. Kindle for iPhone

Kindle for iPhone is another free app for you who loves Amazon. It offers Amazon’s clever “Whispersync” feature that allows seamless switching between the Kindle device and Kindle for iPhone. Whispersync knows where you are in a book, so you can read half a chapter on the bus. And when you get home, your Kindle device will give you the option to pick up where you left off. Plus it also gives you the ability to lock the screen in portrait or landscape mode, so if you want to read in bed, the accelerometer won’t drive you nuts.

3. Stanza

Stanza makes access to the 50,000 of Project Gutenberg and Feedbooks easy, and a similar number of titles you can pay for though partner stores. You can download the desktop version for storage. Plus you can convert your ebooks into .pdb files and have it uploaded in your fictionwise.com account. It’s a real winner because of the accessibility that it gives its users. And all the more, this app is free of charge.

4. Wattpad 100,000+ Books

The iPhone and iPod Touch version of this e-book community is a very popular download. It has a user-generated content, and offers a publishing platform, novels, short stories, poetry and essays.

5. eBooks by Kobo

Kobo is a good looking e-book library which focuses on new books and best-sellers. With a glossy, image-laden interface backed up with discounts for specific titles. One e-book is free for each week. If you are a light reader and you can pass the day without reading, this one is for you. As what we’ve said, this is free of charge.
