Hello fellow Nexus 7 owners,
 
I have a Nexus 7, unmodified, & still with the factory OS (Android 4.2 "Jelly Bean", I believe)
 
I want to create an eBook on my PC, then transfer the eBook/file to the N7, and then also share it with friends.
 
So far, (this has been an on-again & off-again project) I've created my eBook on my PC using MS Word 2010 which allowed me to save the eBook/file as a .PDF file.  This is only as far as I've gotten with this project.  What would be a good way to proceed with getting the file onto the N7?  (Where on the N7 should it go?  How can I share it?) 
 
{I'm an old timer in the PC arena, but fairly new to mobile/portable devices}

Tried dropbox or any other cloud service? You would upload the file to the cloud then email or somehow share the URL for that file. Then whomever you shared the URL with can download the file to their device.

No, I haven't thought of that... I'll look into it, it sounds good, thanx!
 
Would the file then become an eBook automatically or ???

No file conversion takes place with Dropbox. What ever file type you share, the file type is retained.

OK, that'd take care of the sharing portion...BUT:
 
What would be a good way to getting a PDF file onto the N7?  (Where on the N7 should it go? And  what else needs done for the file to show up as an eBook?)
