    oh and the books are in epub format.

    I wondering the same too. Would it just be the case of using software like Calibre for example?

    I actually downloaded kindle and coolreader and none of them worked so I went and got Aldiko Book Reader. And when u open the android transfer application on mac create a new folder called eBook and just drag and drop your ebooks into the folder. When finished go to Aldiko and check off the eBook folder and hit import to Aldiko. And all of your books will be in your library so you can delete them from the ebooks folder.

    Let me know if you still are having trouble I will try to explain the part that is unclear to you.

    Calibre is for converting .lit or.rtf or basically any type of file into .epub or .mobi whichever your eBook reader supports.

    I haven't tried that but if it works for you let me know

    Thanks. When you select the whole folder that's basically the "select all" I have 200 books and I selected them all one by one too it was a hassle then I saw that I could select the whole folder

    Thanks for this! Is there anyway to read them in the nook app though, without buying it from barnes and noble?

    I need help with this issue. I don't have ebook reader but I have got few books on pdf. Only reason that I bought nexus 7, was to be able to transfer my pdf books to the nexus and read them there. But I can't do it and I didn't get exactly how you managed this. Can you explain to me.

    Calibre is for more than just converting books. It's a great library manager and works as a server as well. So you can use Aldiko or FBRreader (among others) and connect to Calibre to transfer books.

    Just google on how to do it or check out the Mobile Read forum. It's a great place for ebook related information and covers Calibre as well.

    you can make a folder on your nexus (pdf), download adobe acrobat or many of the other ebook readers (pdf/epub). Then just open to the destination of your pdfs. thats how i did it on my N7

    1. Get a reader app. (I downloaded the Mantano Lite reader app, which reads .pdf and .epub files.)
    2. Hook your Nexus 7 up to a PC/MAC.
    3. On the Nexus 7, create a folder, "eBooks"
    4. Copy the pdf/epub files to eBook.
    5. Some readers will automatically recognize them. You may need to "import" them for some readers.

    So I have a mac also and I did all that you said. I downloaded Aldiko and got my books on Nexus. The books show the title but they are completely blank.
    Do you know what the issue might be?

    I'm having the same issue. I may just download calibre and convert them.

    Downloaded Calibre. Unable to convert because of DRM issues. HELP!

    I don't like PDF files since they do not let you format the document on the fly like all other format types - so I convert them into another format like ePub or Mobi depending on what eReader I want to read them on.

    I downloaded Calibre and was not able to convert the books because of some DRM that is placed through iTunes. Completely frustrating. I don't feel like paying for a DRM removal.
