    Apologies if this is blindingly obvious..
    How do I go about rectifying this, I've read a few threads that say you have to find/convert & place them in another folder.. trouble is I don't have the ebooks folder that they are supposed to be in..?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Thanks.

    As far as I know, in Play Books you can read only Google eBooks.

    Aldiko reads .epub and .pdf eBook formats.
    Such eBooks files you can place on your N7's storage where you want ... with Aldiko's explorer you will find them :)

    I use Moon+ Reader for .epub eBooks ... has a nice two-page view with page animation on tablets.

    as said above, you can only read your books purchased from the play store in the google books app. sorry.

    I think Play Books places the downloaded books in a folder you don't have access to. This is a fairly obvious anti-piracy strategy.

    You can download (some?) books on your PC with any web browser. As I recall they come down as an encrypted epub so you wouldn't be able to read them with Aldiko. Some books I've downloaded are unprotected epubs, but i susect this is only books that are out of copyright.
