Download Books

This will be presented inside the Book Reader software when it is developed further. There will also be a way to uninstall individual books. For now, the Reader uninstaller will take care of removing books for you.

To uninstall books, simply uninstall the Reader, which will also remove all installed books. Coming soon: ability to uninstall books you no longer want to read, without removing the Reader.
