    There are 2 that I know of - Aldiko and FBReader. I believe there is also another pdf reader.

    I have many books in .lit format. I converted them with Calibre to .epub format, placed them on the SD card at
    /ebooks/import. They worked beautifully on Aldiko, which I prefer to FBReader.

    Hope this helps.

    I'm hoping we can get a kindle port but right now I'm experimenting with fbreader. You can get books from Main Page - Gutenberg and fictionwise.com (I think) looking forward to more answers!

    Hey, so I converted my books to epub and tried both of those readers out and I keep getting epub file not found. Any thoughts on this? And would u happen to know the name of the pdf reader app?

    I've only used the txt books from guttenburg. The thing with those is they are all pretty old... I would like to read some modern books. If you search for pdf there are quite a few readers that support it in the market. Can't recommend any since I haven't used them, but there are both free and paid apps. Might try some free ones first?
