    Anyone reading EPUB's on their XOOM? What is the best reader. I'd like to be able to use the same reader on a Droid X and the XOOM - similar to how I do with IBooks on Iphone4 and Ipad.

    You might want to give the Nook app a try. It allows you to side load ePub files. I use it on my DX and on the Xoom.

    I use Aldiko on my X and just installed it on the XOOM. I had to adjust the margins a little but its working good so far.

    Nice - I was able to load Epub's - and access them in the My Files section of Nook on my DroidX. Is there a way to sync pages between the app on the X and the XOOM - Like Ibooks does?

    Hi xier
    Content downloaded from B&N will be synched between the two devices but side loaded documents won't.

    Should be located in My Computer\Xoom\Device Storage.
    Once you are in the Device Storage directory you should see the Nook folder.
    Inside the Nook folder is a My Documents folder, place your ePub files there.

    Will - thanks for the info. I need the sideload syncing. It seemed that some times it would sync but not consistently. I am leaning towards the Kindle App since it will support mobi and I can convert my Epub's. I'm going to give it a try if my XOOMS arrive - On Fedex truck for delivery Today.

    How are you trying to do it? what's FC?

    I just rechecked ... all you have to do is go to Home screen, click on SD card and navigate to the book you want to import.....viola!

    Interesting though, it does not show up in the Shelf view, but does in the list view. Hmmm... Seems a bug to me.

    Hmm, Now after I opened it, it is showing up on the bookshelf as well as in the list. ....

    Hmm, that's not what happens on mine. I choose sdcard from the home menu and it lets me browse the directories and find the book.

    Do you have the latest version? (mine says 2.0) You're not rooted or something are you?
