Aldiko Book Reader is a free ebook app that you can use to read ebooks on your Android phone or tablet. It works on Android OS 2.1 or higher.
One of the best things about it is that it can read Adobe-DRM ebooks, which means that you can buy ebooks from any independent ebook store. You're not locked into any one ebook service with this app.
Go to the Android Market on your Android device and search for the keyword "Aldiko". It's a free download.
Step 1: Authorize with Adobe ID
If you might be using any Adobe ebooks, the first thing you should do is authorize your device with an Adobe ID. This is how Adobe verifies that you are the same person who bought the ebook. When you have both your computer and device authorized with the same Adobe ID, you can use your ebooks both places.
To authorize your device, tap on "Adobe DRM" under General Settings. If you have an Adobe ID already, type in your Adobe ID and Password and then tap on "Sign in". If you don't have an Adobe ID, just tap on "Register" and you will be linked to the registration page.
Step 2: Import eBooks
Option 1: Put the ebook in the SD card of your device, then tap on the "SD Card" icon at Home. Check the box next to the file that you want to import (or tap on the menu key of your device and choose "Select All"), then tap on the "Import to Aldiko" button at the pop-up window at the bottom.
Option 2: Create a folder (for example, "import") in your SD card, and put all the files that you want to import in that folder. Tap on the "SD Card" icon at Home, check the box next to the folder and then tap on the "Import to Aldiko" button at the pop-up window at the bottom.
Option 3: If the ebook files that you want to import are under different folders, tap on the "SD Card" icon at Home, check the box next to the folders that you want to import and then tap on the "Import to Aldiko" button at the pop-up window at the bottom.
