Using

There are several ways to put books on an XO laptop:

Lists

During the early years of the project, before e-books were popular, we asked for a list of books, and the community responded. See our list of books.

Readers

An e-book reader is software that displays the book for reading. The XO laptop includes readers, and other readers are available. See the early page on readers.

Formats

E-books come in different formats, for which a compatible reader is required. See the early page on formats.
