I have tried getting the epub books installed with the 'Calibre' app, but no luck yet, or at least, I haven't been able to see them on the tablet, much less get them to open up.

I know Google hopes we'll buy books from them, but I'd find that highly irratating if I'm forced to do that, so I'm sure someone has come up with a way...
Hey I am using kobo to manage my books on the google nexus 7 and all i did was drag my books to a directory on the device called nexus, can be any name really, and had kobo do an import search, it found all 1682 books I loaded as a test and imported them.

WAs not hard to do. Trying to figure out how to get the kindle app to recognize the books and the folder as well.
