    Read the post he linked you to. You need to use a different app, and there are suggestions there, if you follow the link and read it. Here's a quote:

    "The only books in Google Books are the ones you buy or receive from them...no side loading. There are other reader apps that allow you to load your own books in multiple formats."

    Yes, I discovered the limitations recently and it's very disappointing.
    So basically, I have to use Google Books for books I buy from there and another app for books I buy/have bought elsewhere.

    I don't know for certain but I understand the kindle app is like that also and will only read books from amazon?

    If that is the case one might need 3 different apps to read their stuff. Terrible.

    In any case, I am using Moon Reader+ Pro from now on and having nothing to do with Google Books at all, why should I bother buying anything from there if it going to be so "exclusive"?

    Yep, that's why I delved into the world of DRM removal. They are my books, and I don't want to organize them primarily by the store I happened to buy them from (not a very useful way to classify books :).

    So far, I've found tools for kindle DRM removal and Google Books DRM removal:

    Calibre is an ereader's best friend. And yeah, I agree that Google Books is too exclusive for my tastes. I've disabled it.

    I sync my calibre library to my cloud account and use Fabrik ebook reader to read them from there.
    For the record If using the kindle app any .mobi file you copy into the kindle folder will appear on the book list and can be read using the app.

    The Google book reader is cool though. Maybe everyone knows already but I was pleasantly surprised to find that, when I installed the app on my iPhone, it opened right to the last page I read on my N7.
