I am searching for this book 'Thirteen Reasons Why - Jay Asher' on Kindle, I wanna download and read the book on my cell (android phone), Anyone having know what format should I convert the book? I heard .pdf is very slow in Android. What about .epub? Does it work?

amazon always distributes the most favored books in the books shelves.if you hold this idea that pdf format is not suitable for your andriod cell. Then just try to use an epub instead.
Since the books is bought from amazon, so the books format is azw. First you need to convert it then drag and drop them to your phone.
conversion procedure will not take you a lont time.just follow this article: how to convert kindle azw to epub in epubsoft website.

If you have it on Kindle then you can have it on your android phone

If your android has Google Play then download the Amazon Kindle App, Once it is installed log into it with your amazon login and it can restore any books you on your Kindle E-Reader

If you don't have Google Play, then use your android phone and go to this link. http://www.amazon.co...ppstore/android Download the Amazon App Store, once that is down then use it to search for and download the Kindle App, then again log into the Kindle app with your Amazon login and you can restore any books you have your Kindle E-Reader


If you don't have it on the Kindle or don't want to use the Kindle App, then you download Kobo, or eBooks, or Google Books and try to read it that way. I prefer Google Books but that is preference. PDF is very sluggish on Android (and most computers) so i would avoid that if possible. most of my books are in ePub format and play just fine in any of the three apps i listed above.Amazon distributes their e-books in a proprietary format that only the Kindle App can use so that is a bummer

Using the Amazon app is simpler than converting into pdf and then reading it with a pdf reader.

You got lots of options here. Personally, I dig Kobo.
