One of the best Reader Apps I've found that is versatile and can do more than I need. At times it can be a bit to technical with options I don't understand so I just try and keep it simple. Once I found a complimentary TTS Voice App that wasn't completely digital sounding I was good to go. Now I use it to read PDF copies of books from time to time or downloaded ebooks from a subscription service. Only reason 4 stars is because it can often be confusing and not so user friendly for simple stuff.

I've used Librera for about two years and I really have no complaints. It is extremely intuitive for the most part, though copying text can be somewhat finnicky. I cannot comment on some functions, such as text to speech or the dictionary, as I have never used these features. I would recommend that you download the app through F-Droid solely for the sake of your privacy though. Overall, it is the best "reader" app that I have used so far.

App is slow to start and loading book pages sometimes lag. There is no manual or instructions on using this app anywhere and with so many settings it is hard to know what is what. The app does not open to the book you are reading or the page and the page you left off on as other ebook apps do. The app seems to also be using a lot of data - and my ebooks are all in my phone's memory so there is no need for the app to be using my data. There also seems no way to shut that off.
