    Hi ALL,

    I got my A500 mainly as a travel companion when I go on a trip and I'm leaving in a few weeks for France! Being the cheap guy that I am (the trip is costing me a bundle!) I downloaded a bunch of public domain free Sci Fi books which were in the EPUB format. Then I transfered them to the Acer and the Lumi-reader reads them just fine.

    I know this is a little off topic, but I don't have any program on my PC that can read an EPUB file. Can someone recommend a simple (and free) EPUB reader for a PC running WIn 7 Home Premium.

    Thanks,
    Gerry

    Hi Mrhelper,

    Thanks a bunch. I installed the one from Adobe since I aready have the reader and am familiar with the company name. I thought it would directly integrate with the reader but all it does is allow it to be opened from with the reader. Anyway it does display the EPUB books properly and that's all I wanted.

    Thanks again,
    Gerry
