Please can somebody advise me on how to download a book on to the Arnova 10 G2 which we have recently purchased for a 82 year old with a degenerative eye condition.   We have tried various applications i.e. Kindle, WH Smith, e-books but we cannot pull the book up.  I am at my wits end and have tried for the last two weeks to get this up and running.[Image Can Not Be Found]

Hello Diane,

Do you have specific existing eBooks that you want to open ?

 

I don't have much experience with eBook readers, but it seems "Aldiko" application that you can find on Appslib has a good reputation.

According to the FAQ on their site, they support the following formats:

Aldiko supports the ePub format.

If you have non-DRMed books in the following formats: lit, pdf, mobi, rtf, txt, html, fb2, prc**, odt, cbr and cbz, you can use a free software called Calibre to convert any of the above formats to ePub and then import your books into Aldiko. You can get Calibre from here http://calibre.kovidgoyal.net/ 

If you like our web site, applications and firmwares, feel free to support our site. Donations are used to pay the bills for our server hosting costs, development tools and purchase new tablets to support.

Many thanks for your quick response.  I do not have any existing books at present.  I will try your suggestions and see if this helps.  Once again, many thanks for your quick response.  It is very much appreciated.

Aldiko is a class act when you get it going. There are a zillion options to set the font type/size, line spacing, margins and colors (try non black and white) to make reading even easier than physical books. But it can sometimes be tricky to get your book data into aldiko.

 

Another app called overdrive has almost as many options for readibility. I discovered by accident that if you go into manybooks.net in your tablet web browser and download one of their zillion of free books, it will ask you whether to hook up with overdrive with epub and load it directly in! It's just so slick and you find results right away in overdrive.

 

Furthermore overdrive will check books out of many local libraries including audiobooks! It's advertised purpose is more along these lines, where it will make the book "vanish" when return time is due.

Also google "books" app will let you read books without really downloading them. It basically downloads a few pages at a time from the cloud as you read with wifi turned on. I suspect you would need the google market set up with new firmware and so on.

 

But I think the easiest thing is overdrive with manybooks.net. Have overdrive installed before visiting manybooks.net , and request epub from manybooks web page. Keep watching for the web page to ask you whether to send the book to your overdrive.
