Do any tablets beside ipad utilize epub? If not is there anything comparable to epud on these tablets. I have a Kindle Fire that will copy in epub, but then I cannot open the file.

Aldiko and Moon reader both read epub's. If you are wondering about any android apps, you can go to google play store (go to and click on the "play" icon at the top of the page) and search for apps to see the availability.. just search "epub reader" and it brings up a good sized list. If you need apps on the Kindle Fire that are not available through amazon, you can download them from elsewhere and then side load them onto it (a good example of this is the Fire's lack of a decent media player like MX Player).

Thank you for your response. However I do have another question. Will Aldiko and Moon readers allow highlighting and writing comments in the margins of the files copied? As you may have already guessed, I am challenged when it comes to technology.

I previously downloaded an epub reader app to my Kindle Fire, but it still would not open the file. Thanks again S. A. French.

What kind of file is it? Any epub reader should read any epub file unless it has DRM. If you got it from Barnes and Noble, for example, you have to read it on one of their devices. That's the problem with DRM.

I'm not aware of any epub reader that lets you make margin notes but that's not a feature I would notice so it might exist in some apps.

You can use a B&H epub file on a non-Nook device, you just install the Nook app.

Moon+ Reader Pro offers highlighting and annotation.

Oops. You're right. I wasn't thinking. I was thinking of apps that worked on a Kindle Fire for some reason.
