    I tried many of them but ended up using side loaded Moon Reader+ which was the only reader that was able to open the converted book

    Book reader is great. Only 99 cents and reads all kinds of ebooks. Even the ones 'found' using the Google filetype: search filter

    Be careful there are two apps called Book Reader in BBWorld. One is really garbage, the other is great. The one I would suggest is called "Book Reader for EPUB and Kindle books" by Untangled Development. It is $0.99 but well worth the buck if you want a good eReader app. Also works great on the PlayBook and you only need to pay for it once. I prefer it over every Android port I've tried.

    BlackBerry World - Book Reader for EPUB and Kindle books

    Moon+ Reader is also a good one if you want to sideload it, link to the bar file is below.

    I use "playepub book reader" by Jesus Iglesias on my Playbook, but don't try it on Z10 even if it is on my market for free.
    I'm fully satisfied by it

    There is this new reader: "Bonfire Reader". It was just launched this week. Has this "iBooks" - style page turning effect when you can drag the page around Seems very well designed - loads books fast, page turning is fluid. Personally - I like it best in BlackBerry World right now. Not the most "feature heavy" - but works much better that others for what it does. Things I like:

    0) 3D page flipping Something crazy about being able to drag the page around and see text on other side, etc.
    1) Imports books automatically from selected locations
    2) Opens books that you download in browser automatically
    3) Very "smooth" and responsive

    Things I don't like:
    1) Doesn't have highlighting at the moment - developer said he is working on it.

    Couldn't install it at first - got some sort of unknown error during installation in BB World. Contacted developer. Turns out - the app was built for OS 10.0.10.116 minimum. Kinda weird - considering most people are still on 10.0.10.90.

    Anyway - I updated to 10.0.10.116 and all was well.

    Developer also let me know that he recompiled the application for OS 10.0.10.85 minimum - that version is in approval queue right now. In a few days it should work for you when you try again.
