- Stanza Desktop eBook App
allows downloads from a selection of “100,000 books and periodicals” onto a Mac or PC as well as the sharing of such downloads onto an iPhone, iPod Touch, or Kindle.
- Sony Reader Software
To purchase e-books via the Sony eBookstore, eBookLibrary Software must first be downloaded. Titles may then be browsed, purchased, and downloaded onto the registered user’s personal computer (but not Mac), then read on the computer or transferred to a Reader via a USB cable.
It’s noted on the Sony eBookLibrary Software download page that no Reader is required to access the Sony eBookstore. Any web-enabled computer allows a visitor to download the EBookLibrary Software, search the eBookstore, and purchase and download titles in ePub format. According to TeleRead.org, such a file can also be viewed in Adobe Digital Editions format—if that free software has already been downloaded—when the “external viewer” option within the Sony reading program is selected.
