What stores' ebooks work on what ereaders?

My apologies if this is covered somewhere, but I'm having the devil of a time trying to find out what stores' ebooks (epub format) can be read unmodified on which readers.

If someone can point me to a thread or a chart somewhere, I'd be very grateful!

Even if the list was limited to the major suppliers and major readers, that would be helpful.

Again, this is without stripping DRM.

Many thanks, and again, apologies if this has been covered!

I think the only issue is Barnes & Noble epub, which uses a different DRM scheme and only works on the Nook. Other than that, I think they all work on any Adept-Capable system. I have used a Libre, a Kobo and a Sony (successfully) with books from Fictionwise (multiformat, epub), Smashwords, Sony, Kobo and Baen.

What about iBook epubs? Don't they have Apple DRM?

Hi, I think this is it..

Since you specified ePub, we will ignore Amazon. All of these answers apply to DRM'd versions. non-DRM should work on any device that supports ePub.

1. Apple ePub: Ipod Touch, Iphone and IPad.
2. Barnes and Noble ePub: Nook, Jetbook, Jetbook-Lite and I believe the Pandigital line of eReaders as well as on B&N software for Android, iOS, Blackberry, etc.
3. Adobe Digital Editions ePub: Pretty much all other readers plus the readers that support Barnes and Noble ePub.

If we removed Apple from the equation, the relationship between B&N and Adobe would be kind of like the relationship between AB blood and O blood. B&N enabled readers can read the most DRM'd formats, while Adobe eBooks can be read on the most readers .

Hope that helps.

Oh Right, one last detail I forgot. Pretty much every store outside of Apple, Amazon and B&N supports Adobe Digital Editions if they sell DRM'd books at all (Not counting obvious exceptions like stores specializing in mobi or even .lit.

Whatever the answer is, I think that it should be stickied!
