    Hi, has anyone tried the Martview ebooK reader & downloader or the flip viewer ebook reader?
    Both have the page-flip feature and some other great features & are free wares. Just downloaded them.

    I'm still waiting my ep121 to arrive, but i 've tried Martview in my dell vostro 1500 (C2Duo 1.6Ghz, 2gbRAM, GForce8600GM-512mb) and works OK.

    I also tried some really heavy PFD's (those that are scanned pages of books) and it manages them pretty well.

    I have a few hundred books in .mobi and .epub formats, so my ebook reader of choice is Amazon's Kindle for PC. There are a lot of options for configuring it just the way you want.

    How do you open anything other than what is in your kindle store?

    Easy, put your books in the Kindle library folder, usually:

    C:\Users\<your name>\Documents\My Kindle Content

    Or point your Kindle to your library in Tools -> Options -> Content

    NOTE: Whisper sync will not work with DRM free content.

    You`re more than welcome dude. I played with it last night, great experience.Has a normal (mouse)and touch mode setting. Best is,it lets you view or convert pdf files into its native file type (.mart)
    I`m more interested in emagazines not ebooks (prefer the good old paperback exp.)and it offers a whole arsenal of it plus I downloaded latest issues of rollingstone,soccerworld,etc mags and the application converted them from pdf to .mart automatically. Now my slate`s become even more valuable.:D

    Not sure the answer to that. Why dont you try it. It`s a freeware. I know it reads Pdf & a few other files.
