Kindle is not the best ebook reader in that it does not allow you to import your own library from anywhere. You have to put those books in a specific directory in phone memory: sdcard>Android>Data> folder.

I use Moon+ Reader myself.

I assume that this was right, as for anything else on the galaxy, I dont know what it can/cant do
You will learn just like everyone else has

I didnt do much on the laptop, just load audio books onto my iPod, answer emails, write my blog, store photos, upload and download photos, watch films/TV episodes (I had stored on my external HD)
I can copy films/TV episodes to my SD card, but knowing what format I need to watch them on the Galaxy would be good, I can convert them before I go anywhere, I assume that MP3's play on a Galaxy ?
Only draw back so far is I have to download stuff from my HD to a SD card, then put the SD card into the Galaxy, there is no where to plug in a external HD, so it looks like I will have tyo take both with me if I want to watch any films/TV and put stuff on to my iPods
Built-int video Player will work with regular video files, no conversion needed.

I am open to any suggestions what I can do on the Galaxy, but games, I dont see the point, I dont win anything, its just something to kill time with, watching films/TV is something to do in the evenings/dark nights

The link you sent me, does it convert the format to something the android can use to read books ?

I dont want to go out and buy ebooks when I have all these I havent read yet

What format does android need to enable me to watch films/TV programs ? (IF I wanted to watch stuff on the iPods, I would use a handbrake program)

Can I convert them ? (I do for the iPod, but thats such a small screen, I dont bother watching anything on that)

No conversion is needed for anything, this is not an iPod where everything is in a proprietary, Apple-owned and double-patented format.
