Here is Google's Instructions:

If the book doesn’t have DRM as is often the case for free books you can use the built in web browser to search and download them. For example you can navigate over to http://www.gutenberg.org/ and download directly any of the .epub files directly into your device. (Note that while it will ask you to confirm the download there doesn’t seem to be any indication when it finishes, you should see the book sitting in your library once you exit the browser.)
It's a shame!
I undestand kobo has no interest in support other ebooks store, but it's theoretically possible to support acsm file handling from kobo glo.
In my android tablet, if i download the acsm file and import it in aldiko reader, aldiko downloads the Adobe DRM epub and add it to its library.
I hope kobo can do this, but unfortunately this is not possible.

I already use ADE with the sony PRS-650. One of the reasons I gave the kobo reader to my wife to replace her old sony PRS-650, was the wifi capability, in the hope she can manage ebooks directly from the ereader.
Now I know this is only possible for kobobooks...

Do anyone know if kobo support at least opds catalogues?

Thank you for all replies!!
