By putting a Pendrive in it?

Why I want this?
I usually read a lot of ebooks but the problem is I forget to sync it between my PC with my Mobile Device. It is better If I store the E-books on the Router itself. So that I can read the same books wherever the network reaches.

With Hope,

I have done this with my last 2 routers - call it the "network drive" for my family to understand and use it. Great for working on the same files from different connected computers. Interesting, though, that my wife's laptop references it in file manager different than my desktop system. Can still get to the same files, but one of them has an extra folder to go through.
