If you want the ease of ebooks with the feel of an old-style paperback, take a look at yBook.
This free, lightweight ebook reader takes ebooks from various sources - including straight from a web address - and displays them on an easy-to-read "paper" background that you can browse through with just a click.
As you might expect, you can modify yBook's settings to make reading as comfortable as possible, including adding bookmarks, changing the font and creating catalogs of books for easy access. yBook supports various ebook formats, including text, HTML, RTF and PRC.
Using yBook was much more comfortable than other ebook reader software, and a few extra functions - such as direct download of Gutenberg ebooks and auto-load for the last read item - make using it very easy. There were a few minor problems, however: the application seemed unstable at times, and the bookmark function isn't very advanced.
A few small issues apart, yBook is a good option for people who like to read onscreen.
