    Hello all. I'm sorry if this is already posted, but I could not find it. I have Aldiko Book Reader, and I have numerous books in other format. I believe Aldiko uses ePub, correct? Is there anyway I can convert my other books to another format so that I can read my other files on Aldiko?

    Yes, Aldiko reads non-DRM .epub files. I recommend the free desktop program Calibre for format conversion and library management. It will convert numerous other formats to epub.

    If you have purchased books with DRM things get a bit more complicated, but there are ways...

    P.S. You can find a huge amount of information on Calibre and format conversion in the Mobileread forums.

    I second Calibre and MobileRead. I'm in the process of trying to find a good way to convert to Aldiko as well, so our paths may cross over there.
