Bookshelf Online eTextBook Reader Display Preferences

How do I change the way the eTextBook displays in Bookshelf Online?

Each eTextBook has Reader Preferences that allow you to change the eTextBook look by giving options to manipulate the eTextBook's text and overall look of the eTextBook. In addition, allow you to change the Highlighter options and share them or follow other's Highlights.

Please note: what is shown below is while viewing an eTextBook that is Reflowable (ePub) formated. At the end of the article, we show the Reader Display Preferences for a Fixed (Pbk) eTextBook format.
