Reading gives you knowledge, reading electrifies the brain, and reading is, well, stimulating. If you love to read eBooks, then your best option on a Windows Phone 8 device would be the Amazon Kindle application. Purchase your favorite books on Amazon like Stephen Kings Dark Tower series, or some other genre of books that appeal to you, and read them right on your beloved Windows Phone 8 device.

The app is free, but the books are not, so keep that in mind.
