Help again - Adobe DE, epub and pdf on Android
My public library provides an incredibly robust selection of ebooks, an initiative that I will happliy get behind.
Problem is, they're in mobipocket or Adobe DRM'ed formats (so, Adobe ePub or pdf). The adobe formats are verified using the adobe digital editions login format.
Is there any way that I can read these on my Android phone? So far, I've come across nothing.

Not without removing the DRM. This is possible (threads on ADEPT), but for lending library ebooks the legal situation is murkier than for ebooks you buy. My guess is that this is illegal in the US. As a practical matter, if you strip the DRM for personal use you are unlikely to be held accountable.
I don't know what the best way to read DRM-free Adobe PDF ebooks on Android is. You can try converting them to ePub, e.g. using Calibre. Both FBReader and Aldiko can read DRM-free ePubs on Android.
