    I believe Kindle uses .mobi and .azw files, not .epub

    Try "Book Reader" in App World, it reads many formats, including epub.

    You probably canNOT just grab a kindle book that is coded for say your computer or your real kindle and place it on the pb. Amazon codes each book for that specific device. So you either have to use the archive on the pb to download a version to the pb or have removed the drm from the book.

    Don't place anything on your PB. Instead, go to the Amazon Book Store with your app and pick up a couple of free apps and try them out before getting more adventurous. Doc Neutron

    Actually, if the format is right, the app will see the book. Dump your. .mobi files in /misc/android/kindle.

    Project Gutenberg can help there.

    Obviously don't know your locale so unsure of your public library services status.

    But i found out that our PL is big on ebooks, so accessing the elibrary dept. using their Pb compatible software 'partnership' with "OverdriveMediaConsole" , Overdrive inc. Reading material to chk out (for initial 21 days) for the price of a yrly Lib. pass !

    ie http://calgarypubliclibrary.com/books-more/e-library
