How do I transfer ebooks from old ereader to a new one

Hi

I have a Sony PRS 600 but, for various reason am thinking about getting a new ereader (probably a Kobo). Most of my ebooks on the Sony are ePUB/pdf, half of which have been purchased from online stores (Kobo, Borders, Books on Board etc). Given ADE etc (which I don't really understand), how would I transfer my 100+ ebooks to a new machine?

I currently keep all my ebooks in the Sony Reader Library (which in turn are kept under My Documents-My Books-Reader Library on my Mac.

If I was to get a Kobo or a similar device, where should I keep/manage my ebooks given that the Reader Library will no longer be an option?

Any suggestions much appreciated.

Welcome to mobileread ....

Have you had a look through advice on the Sony and Kobo forums here on mobileread ?
I can't help with this as I do not know all the ins and outs of these two devices ....
