      Google Play Books vs calibre
      pros, cons and recent comments
      Allows epub-format books to be uploaded, at which point they become available on all devices you have GPB installed on. I use this for all my public-domain (Gutenberg, Azora-bunko, etc) ebook reading.

      You cannot buy books to put onto a regular ereader from this, it is for Android tablets/phones only.

      Only able to manage from the Google Play Books catalog. Cannot upload own books/documents. Does not sync with Kindle device, not able to edit metadata, &c.
