Can I read my own PDF and EPUB books in GooReader?
Yes, Gooreader is a comfortable app for reading PDF and EPUB books. You can also manage small PDF-libraries in Gooreader. You can drag-n-drop books in the local library to change their position. But if you have a big e-library with different ebook formats - we recommend to use one of dedicated book organizers like Alfa Ebooks Manager
