    The only ereader app is the adilko and as far as I can tell you can't download anything but their books, no best sellers, no children's books, etc. Can't even figure out how to transfer from my laptop, even though the guide says you can read epub files throught the ereader.

    To transfer epub, first mount your USB Storage ( Internal ), from your PC go the removable disk, you should see the ebooks folder, create a sub folder and name it import. Copy your epub file to the import folder. Next turn off USB storage(Internal). Launch Aldiko, click on Menu which should popup a menu with option such as import. Click on import. It will start to scan your sdcard for any epub files. When the import is finished, click on Bookshelf to refresh. For some reason it just doesn't see any epub files from the USB Storage ( External ) ie from the MicroSDCard. Let me know if this help.

    I'm using OverDrive
    OverDrive - Global distributor of digital eBooks, audiobooks, music & video for library, school & retail
    to download books from the library
    Wisconsin Public Library Consortium
    I have a library card from a member library system and can "check out" up to six books. I have two out now.
    OverDrive requires an Adobe user account - easy to set up. Give it your zip code and it will look for libraries in your area.
    When your library book (epub) expires OverDrive suggests you delete it so [OK].

    I'm also using Aldiko to download free books - of which I've found very little of interest. From Gutenburg
    Project Gutenberg - free ebooks online download for iPad, Kindle, Nook, Android, iPhone, iPod Touch, Sony Reader
    These are old books. You download the entire book then copy it to /nand/eBooks/import even though Aldiko says to put it in /sdcard/eBooks/import then the Aldiko "import" option will load it for you. I have a 1860's book in French, Antionette de Mirecourt by Madame Leprohon a Canadian I think, at least the book takes place in Canada.
    (p.s. Thanks for starting a thread with a clear title that says what it's about, not everyone does)

    Root it and install the real Android Market. Then you can install the Kindle and Nook apps. Do a search-there are very well done step by step instructions here. I recommend the newbie friendly version. Trust me, it's not hard and definitely worth it.

    topaz47,
    "download ebooks" is way to vague.
    Are you trying to buy kindle books? nook books?
    Checkout library books? Use Overdrive? Read pdf books?
    Free books for aldiko?
    Just any book so you can see how any ebook app works?

    I saw a reply here that refrenced /nand/

    Your e-book programs will be there in that folder. Now all you have to do is explore those e-book folders to see where the e-books are actually stored. Place your e-book download in there and abracadabra...you book will show up in the program.
