How To Turn Your Netbook into an E-book Reader

EeeRotate displaying a blog vertically How To Turn Your Netbook into an E-book ReaderOne of the things I hate about reading a comic book on my PC is that the pages of the comic books were longways and the screen was sideways.  This strange orientation never felt natural and took a little away from the comic book experience.

With the rise of hardware like Kindle and taller screens on iPods and cell phones, people can now enjoy books on a digital portable device, but until everyone can afford a Kindle, what will the rest of us stuck with netbooks do?

Well, you get EeeRotate, of course.


What does EeeRotate do? Well, it rotates the display on your screen and the input from your Touchpad (but not mouse) clockwise 90 degrees.  This allows you to turn your small netbook into a comfy nice reader for all sort of e-books, comic books, PDF documents and anything else you want to read in that form.


There are other application out there that can help you achieve a similar result and one of them is FBReader.  FBReader not only rotates the screen by 90 degrees, but it can also rotate the screen by 180 degrees or 270 if you want.  It also supports a wider range of operating systems like Windows XP/Vista and Linux.
