Is there an easy and quick way to transfer books from eBookwise to Iconia?

So yesterday I made the sad choice to finally retired my eBookwise-1150 reader and replace it with an Iconia. I was assured that my .html based books, of which I have roughly 1,000, would work on the new device. “There is an app for that.” I was enthusiastically informed.

Silly me, I apparently did not ask the right question. Sure, there are apps to read my .html books, but where is the app to do a mass transfer from the Librarian software into the aforementioned html reading book app. Working with an app called “Moon+ Reader” I was able to load one book onto the device and actually read it. This process took several minutes, requiring me to input the author’s name and re-add spaces to the book’s title. The thought of repeating that process over 1,000 times is not appealing! Please tell me there is an easier way. Pretty please? With cherries on top and lots of chocolate sauce?

The problem with transferring .html (ebooks) is that the Metadata for the Title, Author, Category, etc. is not stored in a standard way within the .html that can be read by ebook readers like Moon+.

So it's a manual affair, unless, you try another way, by using your original .imp ebook and using an android .imp reader as discussed here.

It's very barebones, but does display the .imp ebook. I previously used it on Android 1.5 (Cupcake), but haven't tried it yet on Honeycomb (v3.1) (so it may not function properly).

It's worth a try...

Iconia can also be a windows computer. Is the one you bought windows or android? If windows then an imp viewer is included with eBook publisher.

It didn't work properly as it could not open nor find my .imp ebooks on the sdcard!
