How do I read books on my Android device?

Epub or PDF

To read an e-book in Epub or pdf format you’ll need an E-reader. I recommend the  Aldiko app from the Google Play store. After downloading and installing Aldiko, connect your computer to your Android device with a USB cable. Navigate to the folder with the Nice Uncovered file and transfer it to your Android device, remembering the directory. Launch the Aldiko reader, tap on “Files” on the home screen. Locate the ebook files that you just transferred. Check the box next to the ebook files and then select “Import to Aldiko” (it normally appears at the bottom).

How do I download books to my Kindle or Kindle Fire?

1.  USB Connection.  Plug your Kindle into the USB slot (small rectangular slot) of your computer using the cable that came with your Kindle (the Kindle Fire doesn’t come standard with the USB cable, so you’ll need to obtain the cable separately, or, use the email option described in #2 below). When you attach your Kindle to your computer via the USB cable, it makes your Kindle appear as a hard drive on your computer. After you purchase the book, from the book’s book page click to download the “Kindle” .MOBI format. Next, navigate to where you see the Kindle show up as a hard drive on your computer. Next, just drop the book’s file (it should end in file name of .mobi) to the Kindle’s “documents” folder. Then disconnect the Kindle from your computer and the book will be ready to read. If you already downloaded the .MOBI file to your computer, here’s a helpful YouTube video that shows how to drag the file from your desktop to the Kindle’s documents folder:
