Scarlett is a Mac application created with convenient EPUB reading in mind. It supports full-screen mode, Multi-Touch gestures, instant dictionary definition check and creation of spoken tracks (to easily take your books with you on your iPod/iPhone).
In addition to all of that Scarlett bundles delightful EPUB QuickLook and Spotlight plugins.
The application runs on both Lion and Snow Leopard.
I hope that you will enjoy using it as much as I do.
Scarlett does not support DRM-encrypted books.
Scarlett 1.0.5 brings bug fixes and OS X 10.11 El Capitan compatibility.

Great app but need some minor improvements - Dear developer please include: 1) continuous reading mode - I hate turn on/of TOC to go to the next chapter. Annoying! 2) Bookmarks - really miss this one. Would be nice to have an option to sync bookmarks with iCloud. 3) Touch navigation. For now prctically everyone has magic mouse or trackpad or laptop with everything… Why not include some gestures - next page/previous page etc… Regards,
Utterly non-functional - This app is utterly non-functional. Purchase it at your peril. I have only a modest collection of ePub books, 23 in total. They are all DRM-free and are all completely readable within iBooks. Nearly half of them are completely unreadable within Scarlett. As just one example, my copy of The Wise Man's Fear by Patrick Rothfuss, which works flawlessly on both my iPad and my iPhone within iBooks, displays nothing but a chapter list and blank pages when I load it into Scarlett. A search of the book for "Kvothe" (the name of the main character) provides a list of results, but clicking on any of those results to actually view them reveals only more blank pages. As another example, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six manages to display the book's title and a chapter list, but nothing else beyond that. Yet another example, Neal Stephenson's Anathem can't even display a chapter list, it merely shows a list of the *sections* of the book, and no text. Those books that do work function competently enough, but if the ratio of working to non-working files in my collection is at all representative, the odds are not in your favor. If you actually want to use an app for reading ePubs on your Mac, do not buy this app. It does not work as advertised.
