    I use my phone at work to read a couple chapters out of a book. But on the weekends I would prefer to use the Iconia Tablet I have at home. But dont want to have to mess with finding my place each time when changing devices. Is there a reader app that can sync between two devices instantly?

    the nook does automatically, sometimes it takes a few seconds but if you dont touch anything it will ask if you want to go to the last page read. I go between my phone, the nook, and occasionally the IPad. Dont know about other readers like kindle etc

    Isn't there a way to upload a file into your Kindle library? Been a while, but I thought that was an option.

    If you click here you'll be able to sync with the kindle app. I find that the kindle app is a little more user friendly than the nook app, along with is having more features. If you download Calibre you'll be able to turn all of your book into MOBI format which is what the kindle program uses to allow for text scaling and annotations.


    This program WILL sync across devices and will allow you to manage everything through your amazon account.


    Hope that helped.

    I'm pretty sure you can batch convert! Just start it before you go to bed and it should be done in the morning.

    great apps to sync with

    I do the same-read my books on my phone and pick up again when I get home on my Asus Transformer. I use Aldiko and Aldiko sync add-on app. It uses Dropbox to sync your books between devices. No more chapter hunting.

    The issue with Google books is that you're unable to get books in or out of the system. Kindle/Nook allows you to upload your own books in to the system.

    You dont need to use kindle or google to read books. What you can do ia go to the library and get a library card that allows you to rent books for free whenever you want. Well worth it imo.
