i get my books from either amazon(kindle app) or from google's play book. i do not bother with any of the other formats for ebooks. plus i can read them from tablet, and have it sync to my evo 4g lte and i can pick up right where i left off. not sure how it is on other ereader apps.

If certain formats can't be loaded to Android, is there anyway of converting.
I've never really dealt buying e-books myself, apart what I've downloaded in PDF format.
But I think problem is many e-book systems have DRM and their own proprietary formats. It's illegal to crack the DRM, and so is almost impossible to convert them into another format. I know if you buy a DRM'd e-book from Amazon Kindle, you can't read it on anything that isn't a Kindle. Same if you buy DRM'd e-books from the Apple iTunes Store, you can't read them on an Android device, they're iOS only.
It's something to be aware of anyway.
Also another thing with something like the Amazon Kindle store, it seems to be United States only. So if you go outside of the US, you can't get at the e-books you've bought? An expat friend of mine had this. He brought an Amazon Kindle e-reader with him from the States, and all it would do was just give a message saying that it wasn't available here.
