About Reading Fanatic
Reading Fanatic is a toolbar browser extension which claims to help its users locate popular and bestselling ebooks online, completely free of charge, with just a simple download.
A toolbar is an extra addition to your internet search browser. Generally, a toolbar is designed to work with a specific browser, so the toolbar you use with Mozilla Firefox generally won’t work for Google Chrome or Internet Explorer.
A browser extension widens the scope of your browser’s functionality. In the case of Reading Fanatic, the claim is that this addition to your browser will help your search feature specifically find and identify free ebooks. They claim you can find access to over 1 million free titles.
ReadingFanatic.com says that applying this feature to your browser is incredibly simple – it just requires you to download and install the toolbar. The toolbar is completely free, and there is no registration required.
Whenever you download new items to your hard drive, it is smart to ask yourself is it safe to download this product? Many downloaded items can contain a virus. Even if the item is clean of all malware, toolbar extensions have the ability to collect your information and sell it to third party sources.
The policy goes on to state that none of your personal information will ever be sold or shared. Rather the information shared will be used to provide you with better targeted marketing and product results.
If, after downloading this item, you decide you no longer want it and wish to return to your original browser, you can find detailed instructions at ReadingFanatic.com which will explain to you how to uninstall the toolbar and return to your original browser and settings.

Would not let me uninstall it
I should have read the reviews here before downloading it. Had to do a system restore to get rid of it.
Free Public Library eBooks
Check your Public Library for their free eBooks and audio Books.
I have a Kobo Glo and when I click on Kobo eBooks, the only ones that come up, are not free!
Not a good as advertised!
reading Fanatic -no thanks
Don`t like reading fanatic at all.Never ever download it.I have had so many problems when I`ve downloaded reading fanatic and my anti-virus goes ballistic.Am staying well away from reading fanatic and advise others to do the same
Free on the net PHEW!!!!!!!!!
I have on occasion by accident Downloaded a toolbar that Say's it's free and brilliant. I think they mean it is free to roam your computer and pinch what it can.
Then try and remove it, not the easiest of tasks. Eventually your browser is the only thing free when you've trashed the toolbar.
If they are that good why make them difficult to remove, Virtually a virus in themselves they know people won't want them.
Maybe this one is genuine, I for one hate freebies off the net cause they aint wot d'say most the time.
Blocked by Anti-Virus Program
My anti-virus program flatly refused the installation of this toolbar. I love to read, but I hate to remove viruses from my computer. Perhaps, it not a malicious virus but I have the sneaking suspicion that it would either snoop around on my computer or redirect my web searches, or keep track of my web traffic. Well, I am keeping my hands off. Free sometimes means that the cost is hidden.
I can't even get as far as loading the tool bar. It's telling "it failed to retrieve buttons" what ever that means!!!!!
It is a Wonderful ToolBar
I just Love this toolbar.
I use it everyday to get free ebooks from amazon.
It also gives me easy access to PaperBackSwap which I have been using for years.
The book sifter is especially useful to find free ebooks in different types of catagories.
It was easy to install and I have found no viruses.
I would definitely recommend it.
Sounds to me like John works for ReadingFanatic.
