    The HTC Desire has a pre-installed reader app with several free Kobo ebooks. I wanted to download two of the free classics, but when I click "Free Classics" on the Reader, nothing shows up.

    I thought I have to upgrade the program so I downloaded the Kobo Reader from the market. From the Kobo reader I was able to download and install the two free classics I wanted.

    But the two readers seems separate. What I downloaded in the Kobo reader does not show up in the default Reader. Is there a way to integrate the two?

    I don't think so.

    But there is a way to import .ePub from your SD card in the DHD stock Reader:
    With the DHD stock eBook reader to import an eBook on your SD card you have to create a folder 'Digital Editions' on the root of your SD card.
    In this folder put your .epub (sometimes people have to use USB-PC connection, I did it with my file manager).
    The book appears in the bookshelf of the reader :)

    And the DHD stock eBook reader can lookup a word/sentence directly in a dictionary!
    For lookup in a dictionary, I mark the word/sentence in the eBook and then I can choose Google dictionary, Wikipedia, Google etc.

    "In this folder put your .epub ..." means:
    Copy your .epub files in the folder 'Digital Editions'.
    Before, you have to create the folder 'Digital Editions' on the root of your SD card.

    I used my Android file manager :)

    EDIT: Note, the folder 'Digital Editions' is for the stock DHD eBook reader, not for the Kobo.
