    What Google App - can I use as a general book reader - to read - epub documents that I create from calibre.

    I have been reading alot of epub content - on another reader - that I'd like to move to my nook. Right now - I've got Kindle app, Nook app, and Google Books ( I think .. ?)

    Can either of those read general e-pub content on a rooted NC android tablet. Or should I be looking for an alternative app?

    Thanks

    Maybe the reader - without CM7 on it - but I tried putting the epub file on every Nook App folder - and I can't get it to show up on the app to read. Any other suggestions??

    There are tons of options for reading epub. The B&N should be able to do it, CM7 also comes with the google books app which should be able to read epub. Aldiko is a popular choice but go to the Market and take your pick.

    I am on CM7, and my epub files are in the "my documents" folder under nook folder.

    I was able to find it there too. I accidentally put .txt files in the folder - and wasn't coming up in my readers. I got it in both reader apps now - I'll have to play around with both - and see which one I like better Nook app - or Aldiko app.

    For they are your personal epub documents, you can copy them to your android tablet to the "Documents" folder or "Books" folder. Then open with "Play Books", for it's the original android reading app.

    Of course there are another more apps for you to have a try, such as FBReader.
