    ePub is far more versatile as an eBook. PDF is for sharing other types of non-editable documents. Though I'll settle for a pdf book if I have no other choice. The content is king.

    Just today I prefer PDFs, but I'm not closed to ePub. As I can see, ePub is mainly for literature and I read more technical books than literature.

    Sometimes it really depends on our interest and maybe on our moods. I prefer epub but I also used pdf.

    Most people use Calibre, or that's the impression I get. I use Stanza, but that's on a Mac.

    The poll result tells us that there are many readers who prefer to use epub than pdf.

    epub for reading books, novels etc. PDF for textbooks and reference material, esp if links are active in the PDF file like with many textbooks.
