Deseret Bookshelf is a free, unique e-reader application designed specifically for LDS books and scripture study. While it is an enjoyable way to simply read a favorite book, it really shines as a gospel study tool. Scripture references in ebooks are linked to the Standard Works allowing you to quickly explore scriptural connections. And Bookshelf's full-text search feature makes it easy to find quotes and key passages anywhere they appear in your library.

When you download the app and login to your DeseretBook.com account, you will instantly receive 8 free classic LDS titles for your library as well as a copy of the Standard Works. Free titles include: Jesus the Christ,Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, Discourses of Brigham Young, Lectures on Faith, History of Joseph Smith by His Mother, The Miracle of Forgiveness, Gospel Doctrine, Autobiography of Parley P. Pratt.

The free titles plus the Standard Works require a one-time download after the app is installed. After you register or log in using your DeseretBook.com account, the free books should automatically start synchronizing with your device.

Good, could use a few tips So far this app works mostly well. I would just recommend a few changes. 1) sometimes it gets hung up when online connectivity is not available. I would just disable the need for online checks, until one wants to manually sync. 2) please provide a night time reading mode (invert the colors, page to black, letters to white). 3) sometimes when I swipe it doesnt take me to the next chapter, just to the same place in the following chapter. Please fix this to beginning of next chapter. Otherwise great job.
