GooReader is an application that makes it easy to search, read, and save books from the Google Books service. The interface is very attractive as it lists or showcases books searched as though they are on a real book shelf, giving that authentic look of being in a real library. Google Books capabilities also extend to GooReader. For example, Google Books allow one to find public domain books, magazines, as well as other digital publications - and this vast digital database is accessible and searchable right on the desktop, thanks to GooReader. If you are an avid reader, GooReader makes it so much easier to have an organized collection of shelved books from the already cluttered Google Books collection. Books are now searchable by title, book ID, or author. Unlike the already available Google Books interface that lists all the books and digital data available, GooReader goes a step further and displays results of even digital copies that are available in Full View, which can be a very handy search option.

When using GooReader, you will feel like you are reading a real book: the application allows you to turn pages, zoom, and view books in full-screen mode. This application pushes books right onto your desktop and makes it easy for you to read their contents.
