Bubblin Superbooks


A modern e-book reader for the web

"Whenever you read a good book, somewhere in the world opens a door to allow in more light."

—Vera Nazarian


About

☞ Bubblin is all about experience of reading books on web. Comfortably.

We are an online café of books—meaning, a silent and cozy place to hang out and read interesting classics, share stories and meet other book-lovers on web. By silent we mean: no invasive advertisements, no loud and convincing reviews from salesmen posing as other readers and only authentic content.

Enjoy instant offline books on any device (see support) for FREE.

☞ Bubblin is also a platform for the creative.

Our books are basically a collection (ordered stack) of responsive webpages, so everything that works on web also does natively so inside of our books. Add markup, images, css, javascript, canvas, webgl or even AR/VR to make your work stand out.

Head over to our documentation if you're salivating already or holler us out on chat below. We are making books a first-class citizen of web. Let's do away with pesky little files that need to be pushed around or are just cumbersome.

Our hope is that you will enjoy your stay here. Good or bad, do leave us a note with your thoughts to help us make it better. Love books and the quiet company of like-minded individuals.

    One of the challenges with photography e-books is that they tend to be very heavy. Bubblin has an elegant solution for that.
