Question Fastest and best ebook format

Hi, I've had the sony prs t1 for awhile now and it's been great. Lately though, some of my ebooks have been lagging when loading and changing pages; also sometimes they get stuck on one page and i have to manually input the page number to change pages.

So I'm wondering what format should I convert my .pdf's and other ebooks into in order to have really quick page turning, ebook loading and little to no page looping?

PDF conversion isn't going to work or look right. Generally the better format for ebooks, especially on the Sony is epub.

you could always convert them to a word doc, reformat and then convert to epub or vice versa. there are plenty of conversion programs out there that will do the job.

I convert all my books to pdf as i read them on both my reader and on my pc at work and that way i don't have to worry about trying to figure out what page im on when i switch between the pc and reader

I have found that e-pub is the best format for the T1. I use calibre to convert

Is that what people do with flawed ebooks -- convert them to word docs and then reformat them all over again? There has to be a better way to fix typos.

You can edit e-pubs directly with SIGIL a free e-pub creator/editor what I usually do to try and fix "bad" epubs is use calibre to convert the file to mobi and then re-convert to e-pub, it works in a lot of cases.... SIGIL will also tell you if your e-pub is bad, I try and check the books before I load them into the device, if the e-pub is readable in pc reader or calibre then you are generally ok
