          No, the Nook app is only for books from B&N. You will need to use another app like Aldiko or FBreader, there are others but those are the ones that I use.

            Of course you can sideload (on early versions you couldn't, though).  I have all my non-drm epubs in the My Documents folder of the Nook app.  Be aware, however, that it does take awhile for the app to recognize the files are there.  I need to reboot a couple times and let the phone settle for a bit before re-opening the app and finding all the files.

             

            Once you see the "my files" folder in the app with a number in parenthesis next to it, you will know your side-loaded epubs are available for reading!

                That is good to know. I had only ever used the original app and it wouldn't let you sideload anything

                  Thank you for the information, this is very useful.  I am thinking of switching from my Blackberry to an Android phone in October when my contract is up.  Although I love the Blackberry, it pisses me off that the ereader application is not compatable with epub files so I have several books that I have purchased but can not read on my phone.  Thinking of getting the Samsung Infuse.
