What is your favorite reading app for Windows 8?

Kiassovi

I just switched to Windows 8 (I don't like it, but that's the buit-in OS on my new laptop), but haven't got used to reading eBooks on it. It's ok to read Kindle books with Kindle for win8, but I can't find a good free EPUB reader.

 

This is what I have found most helpful about how to read eBooks on Win8 (I wonder why it took me so long to reach it.) I just wanna know, what is your favorite reading app for win8, especially for EPUB?

 

PS: I don't like Nook or Kobo, which always crash when I used them on my win7.

I get my books from Amazon mostly, so I'd go with the Kindle app.

I don’t know why you had problems with Nook or Kobo, but I think those are among the best choices for EPUB. But whatever, things happen. Metro reader would be another option. If you get book from Amazon, Kindle for Windows 8 is the obvious choice.
