Why I can't read .epub book?
I was Kindle book reader for a while. I used to download .mobi book and read it on my Kindle Fire. Now I am iPad ebook reader
I installed 2 reader apps: Kindle and Ebook reader. I could read my .mobi book only in Kindle app. It looks to me that Ebook Reader has better interface but it does not read .mobi. Well than I downloaded the same book but in .epub format.
unfortunately Ebook Reader does not open it. I am confused because doc states that iPad should read .epub format.
What I am doing wrong?
Thanks in advance

what app are you opening the book with your ipad...are you using the native iBook app? it has a view for pdf files or ebooks

Maybe I should better download iBook app?
Well when I tried to open it in iBook it worked fine. I think I'll just remove Ebook Reader and it looks to me that the same book looks much nicer in iBook than in Kindle.

So, once we know from where the e-book came from, we might can better help.

Brian got it!
Calibre is a super-powerful software.
Seems that you are a newbie to ebooks, here is the Calibre Guide.
