With our recent transition to a digital-only format, it's now possible to consume Linux Journal in a number of ways. For those so inclined, it's even possible to print each issue and bind it into a paper magazine. (The PDF lends itself quite nicely to that in fact) Electronically speaking, however, it's hard to beat the .epub/.mobi editions.
If you'd like to browse this month's issue without ever leaving your computer, you might want to check out EPUBReader, a Firefox add-on that turns your browser in a mini-library. After installing the add-on, epub files are opened automatically and added to the local epub library. To access your library, simply go to Tools, and select ePub-Catalog. You'll be presented with a list of all your locally stored epub books, and with a simple click, you can be browsing.
EPUBReader includes support for an interactive table of contents, which makes wise use of a computer's widescreen display. It even supports keyboard shortcuts! EPUBReader is free, cross-platform and quite honestly, a really nice e-reader app. Check it out for yourself at http://www.epubread.com.
