New Book View & ePub Download

virtual booksAs many of you have noticed, we’ve recently made some cool changes to our book view. No more arrows to turn the page, just a simple click. Pretty cool, huh? We wanted a modern look that was both sleek and efficient. To ensure the best performance of our site, we recommend that you use the most recent version of your browser for compatibility purposes.  During initial testing, we found that Mozilla Firefox 12.0 as well as Internet Explorer 9 worked best with our most recent updates. If you experience any issues or errors, we advise you to download either of these browsers to fix the issue.

We have also disabled the download function in the BX format. Why did we do this? Well, unfortunately this option was putting a large strain on our servers which often times caused our site to slow down or become unavailable. Most commonly this occurred over the weekend. Members can still read their books “offline” and we’re recommending some free programs that allow you to read ePub files on your computer.

There are three options we suggest. The first being Adobe Digital Edition and the other, an add-on for your browser, is EPUBReader. This add-on is used for Mozilla Firefox 12.0 and was chosen because our site runs best with this browser.  Our third recommendation is a program called Calibre.

BookRix is really excited about the new changes we’ve made and we hope you enjoy them as well. If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know!
