Edge will support bookmarks and a table of contents for the eBooks, so navigation through the opened book should be very easy. The built-in EPUB viewer supports theming and the ability to customize the font.

As of this writing, early e-book store access is available only in an internal build of Windows 10 Mobile. In the near future, this feature will reach Windows 10 for PCs and all the public Insider rings.
