    Reading ePub books with Android Kindle App

    I have the Kindle app and wanted to get some books from my local library. What folder do i need to transfer the epub files to on the Droid? I saw a kindle file but all that was in it was cover folder... Let me know if this is even possible...

    Kindle doesnt work with epub. You can either get the same book from amazon (most classics are free), or try using the Nook app.

    Hmm Ive been reading and using ebooks for years and Ive never heard of that format. Might want to head over to mobileread.com and ask in their forums.

    not sure about with the kindle app, but with the nook you normally have a my library folder or something of that nature that you would put a book file in.Since the kindle is limited to only Amazon's formatting, try the nook app to see if it supports that file type. Not sure off the top of my head if it does, but it is one of the more open readers when it comes to format usage.

    Not sure about the kindle app, but with the regular kindle, it isnt limited to just amazons formatting, it just doesnt do epub.

    Reading ePub on Kindle for Droid - Easy Conversion

    The Kindle app doesn't read ePub, but it does read Mobi format. There's a free converter called Calibre. The details of how to do the simple conversion of ePub to Mobi are in a fine post by Andrys Basten at A Kindle World blog: A Million Free Google Books in ePub - for Kindle - UPDATE

    I prefer the interface on the Kindle app and also prefer buying books on Amazon, so it's worth it to me to be able to convert ePub for kindle and have all of my electronic books on the same reader. Otherwise I'm scattered among various readers, each of which I've found to be less than satisfying.

    But I haven't tried Nook yet, so I'll download the app now.

    Kindle far better than Nook

    Update: I downloaded the Nook app. I don't care if it does read ePub directly. Kindle is a far better app. I'll keep Nook for a while, but it keeps crashing my device and the interface is less than desirable.

    Reading non-Amazon Books on Kindle

    Yes, that's exactly what I mean.
