In the comments to the previous articles in this series (IbisReader, CodexCloud), readers recalled this wonderful service several times. And this is not surprising —Bookmate is currently the most interesting project of its kind in the Russian-speaking segment of the network. Let's see what merits have provided this service with such high popularity among book lovers.

Bookmate is an online library that provides a number of opportunities for comfortable storage and reading of books. As in any decent library, first of all you need to get a subscription, that is, go through the registration process. After that, you will have access to more than 5,000 free books from the library's collection, mostly classical literature. In addition, you will be able to upload your books in fb*2 and ePub formats, which will be saved in your personal library.

The books in your library are presented in the form of cute volumes with the display of the title and author, and when possible, the cover image. Recently added books are displayed in the sectionIn the processing, which are in the process of being read are being read, and those that are already finished are moved to the sectionRead. In addition, you can create your own lists (shelves) and distribute your books according to them as you like.

Any book from your library can be opened in the built-in reader. Its appearance is optimized for the most comfortable reading from the screen of your device, however, if you have special requirements, then you can easily customize the font to your taste.

But the strongest side of Bookmate is the availability of clients for different mobile platforms (Android, iPhone, iPad, Symbian) and the ability to synchronize data between them. Thus, you can start reading on the desktop using a browser, and continue from your mobile phone or tablet, and from exactly where you left off. At the same time, the book can be fully downloaded to your device, so you can continue reading without a network connection.

Like any modern web application, Bookmate also has a social component. So, you can share what you read on Twitter, Facebook* or Vkontakte, get recommendations, add other users as friends, see their reading list and take books from their shelves.

The online service Bookmate is by far the most advanced library, providing even with a free use model a full set of functions for convenient book collecting and reading. However, we will try to look for a decent alternative in the following articles.
