    Beware: epub and epub are not necessarily the same. If you buy an ebook in epub format from a source other that Sony’s Libray store forget about viewing it on you Prs-600. Waste of money and time. The DRM (digital rights management) should be more transparent; if you are an authorised purchaser Sony should be able to recognize your purchase from a source other than Sony. It does not.
