    What format books in

      When you browse ebooks, how can you tell whether the book will be in eReader or EPUB format?  I'm only interested in eReader books so I'd like to be able to know how to determine that.

          There is no current way to check.

            If you really insist on only ereader books, try fictionwise.  You get to pick the format, and I believe every single book is in at least eReader format there, though usually more than just that.

                I think this is an important piece of information that should be included in the Details section of the book.  The reason I like eReader instead of EPUB is because eReader is a more robust and portable format.  It also doesn't require validation from a central server that might disappear one day.  With eReader, once I download it, I can install it in any compatible reader I want at any time I want.


                As far as I'm concerned, the Ereader format is the best ebook DRM format available - more portable than anything else, very robust & mature, "perfect" DRM (no one's going to pass around their credit card number)
