best reading app for me - sideloaded books only

on my tablets, i use Google Play Books, Kobo's app, and (soon) the Kindle app for books i buy from the respective stores. however, for sideloaded books, i'm not sure which NEW app to pick...

1 - i want this to be a separate app so that i know which books are sideloaded and therefore NOT synched to the other tablet/reader/device
2 - ability to read epub, mobi, and possibly txt and pdf
3 - i can set up folders or groups so that if i load 500 books, they're somewhat organized (ideally via PC USB connection, but that might be asking too much)
4 - it can sort and display using the "series" and "series number" metadata
5 - i can pay a few bucks for it, doesn't need to be free

There are many excellent choices when it comes to independent e-book readers when using Android with Mantano, Moon+, Cool Reader and Aldiko probably being the best. I peronally use Mantano as my primary reader but I have gone back and forth with Moon+ over the years. I think Mantano has the best management options for large libraries where I prefer the customization options available with Moon+ but both are good products in both departments. Moon+ has an advantage for you in that it can handle mobi files. I use calibre to convert mobi files to epubs so it has never been an issue for me. And while I haven't talked about Aldiko or Cool Reader they are ecellent products as well. I think you would be happy with any of them.

If you want to explore your options, I believe they all have free editions, you can use. They also all have good websites that will provide more information than you find on Goggle play for instance. There is also the option of browsing YouTube for additional information.
