    First time posting

    Have a Blackberry Torch 9860 and I am wondering...how can I read my own ebooks on it?

    I have books from my computer that I want to add...they are all in the .epub format.

    Any suggested apps? And if there are any that let you add books, how can you add them?

    Thanks!

    The best way to find out would be to go to appworld and search for ePub reader ...

    like this Search Results for "epub" - BlackBerry App World

    See one of my old posts to install kindle on your 9860

    fairly straightforward.

    Very easy to add ebooks too, just drag and drop in Win Explorer etc


    good luck

    Alrighty...I have Kindle downloaded for the 9860...where is the folder that I can manually place my own epubs etc?

    I have tried Googling it, but I am basically a Blackberry virgin :P This is only second BB I've had (the first being a Bold when I was living in Asia)...I don't want to have to carry my iPhone 4s with me everywhere just to read a book when I am bored ^^

    Haha, thanks and let me know!

    Soapey: Do you use Calibre on your PC to store and manage your ebook library?

    I started using it a few months back when my collection started to grow and can highly recommend it, especially for converting between ebook formats...
