Pros & Cons:

Intuitive, annotate, customize, dictionary search.
Converts all books into proprietary version of .prc files.

Our Review:

Mobipocket Reader Desktop is a fully-featured reading solution. It has an intuitive interface, annotations and even a dictionary search when configured properly.

The reader includes an auto-column layout for an optimal reading experience, with options for page size, full width display, 2 or 3 column display with customizable font types, sizes and background colors.

It supports .lit,.html,.txt and .pdf files. Mobipocket also claims to sync with mobile devices such as Blackberry, Pocket PC or PDA, but it does not seem to have extended to support Android and iOS mobile devices.

The main disadvantage is that it stores all of your books in a proprietary .prc version. What this means is that for every book you read, you need to import it into Mobipocket.
