I have Windows XP Pro SP-3 (32-bit).

I live in the USA and my automobile club (AAA) is starting to make their TourBook Guides available online for download. The files to download are made for IPad, iPhone, Kindle, Nook, Sony Reader... I do not have any of these e-readers and would like to open such files using my desktop instead.

Does anyone have a recommendation for a freeware that handles the most popular e-book formats? (So far, I've seen files with extensions such as .epub and .mobi but there probably are other formats too)

Doing a search with Google brings up a staggering amount of such software. But which one is(are) the best one(s)??

Well I found microsoft has its own software but I am not sure if you can import files that you download outside of it. Here is the link to that: http://www.microsoft.com/READER/

Ok I also found this one from adobe: http://www.adobe.com/products/digitaleditions/

Also you can use adobe reader I think to read them.

Or if you want a simpler one try this one: http://www.ebookmall.com/palm-reader.htm
If I have replied to a topic and you reply and I haven't gotten back to you within 48 hours (2 days) then send me a P.M.
