The eBook Reader has just reached 10k users and that's a huge milestone.

How to join

Anybody who enjoys chess eBooks and is interested in taking part in beta testing, please email me or send a PM on Reddit.

So far 32 people signed up for the beta tests. I'm so excited for this!

I'm considering two ways different ways for the app:
