I have mostly ePub books & don't have any problems. There is a lot of support for the format & Calibre is a good tool for converting files. I am currently using the free Aldiko 'cause it was recommended here & it seems to work well. Still learning how to use it & it appears that after the tips screen is cancelled, with imported books (SD card) you must tap the screen for the book to show. I will disable the tips screen & see if that changes. Thought, at first, that it wasn't working on imported books. Edit: OK the blank screen thing went away???? The books reside on the SD card, so it must remain in tact as far as I know. It would be nice if they could be stored in internal mem.Cheers,kev

x2 on EPUB. I finally settled on that format as my own personal "standard" because any library using the Overdrive application to loan out books use Adobe DRM'd EPUB format. Most e-readers support EPUB, including the OF PN and iPad - the only major exception being the Kindle. I haven't decided on a PN e-reader app yet (will try Aldiko next)Probably the largest caveat with EPUB is the lack of Kindle support, so it's really a personal choice depending on your needs.

Am I the only one incredibly annoyed by the way that Aldiko blacks the screen and loads every time there is a chapter change? It drives me crazy.
Nope I don't care for it either.I have hundreds of books in .prc/mobi/azw Which I read on Kindle or Kindle on PC. Kindle for android will not read .prc/mobi files not in your online library. So it looks like I'll be using Calibre to convert to EPUB. I already use Calibre to maintain my library.

I have a kindle and I have a nook... Amazon has a great selection of books, and a lot of free books.. The nook of of course has access to the epub format available at the library, which I like very much... but I love the actual Kindle better then the nook.... I have them all installed on the novel, although the kindle software isnt working... I imported books I previously bought from B&N onto the Novel, now just to do that wiht the Kindle and my world will be almost complete..
