    Default Reading a Book on Nexus 7

    I have some books in EPUB format (no DRM). I'd like to read these on my Nexus 7. How?

    Is it simply a matter of dragging these into the N7 Download folder and using GooglePlay Books to access these? Seems too easy.

    Aldiko (free app in Google Play) is an excellent way to read books. You can drag books from your computer into eBooks file on Nexus or use Calibre Cloud (free app in Google Play) to download directly into Nexus. Aldkido uses Epub format. Also recommend Calibre (free software) to convert epub to mobi and vice versa.

    I believe if you install the B&N Nook app you just drag your files to their folder and read them with that reader. I am not sure if you can do that with the Kindle app.

    Once I download Aldiko to my N7 where do I store the epub book files I want it to read?

    OK -- I see!
    Installed Aldiko; worked just fine.
    Thanks for the advice.

    I used to use Aldiko, until i discovered FBReader. The difference is that FBReaer will read aloud to you once you install the TTS plugin. I read at night, but now have my books also read to me when i'm getting ready for work or driving. It's a free app in the PlayStore.

    Easiest way I found is to add them to Google books from a pc here

    https://play.google.com/store/books

    Then download. That way they will sync between devices . . handy when you have an android phone and tablet.

    I tried Aldiko, which is just fine, but Moon + Reader is the best reading app IMO. And the few dollars it costs to get the Pro version are worth it.

    Nobody has mentioned the best feature of Google play - you can get it to read to you in a high-quality american or english male or female accent.
    Plus it allows you to add free books from Gutenberg to your library.
    Have to say I dont know yet how to apply the voice v3.0 update to the app, and adding the freebies doesnt always seem to work.
    I have a nexus 10.

    I totally agree. Moon Reader+ is awesome
