    So I read somewhere that there's an app called Nokia Reading that let's you read DRM free epubs and PDF files. How is that for PDF files compared with the rather crappy PDF Viewer app?

    Much better.
    Though just remember that Nokia has not made the app available in USA yet and i'm not sure if the app is available for Windows Phone 8?

    Nokia Reading is available in Europe. Just change in your 'Language+region"-->County/region to United Kingdom or other European country. Reboot your phone, go to store and download it.

    Diesel fan.....clever man!
    Worked exactly as you described. I'm a yank with Nokia Reader now. 😊

    Would love to know the bogus reason for hiding it.

    Wow, great tip, thanks a ton. It also loaded an ePub file that Bookviser wouldn't render. Awesome.

    I tried uninstalling the PDF reader but when I tried to open a PDF it sent me to find an app in the Store. (I already have Nokia Reading installed.)

    Maybe you have to open the PDF from within Nokia Reading?

    Could someone answer,
    I have mobi and epub files, non-drm, on my computer.
    How do I get them on and read them on my Lumia 920?

    I am able to read them on both my Android and IOS devices. But, can't figure out how to on WP8.

    What do I need to do?

    Licensing costs, same as why Nokia music USA came ~8 months after it had been launched in Europe.

    Just like music you are talking about book store at some countries and copyrighted material.

    EDIT: had to repear region change and reboot and it worked

    You can just manually search it in the store since you change the region to UK.

    Yeah, I agree to Gustav Martono. I'm trying to download a pdf from my skydrive but says your phone needs to be charged while downloading. However, my phone is charged :P
    Anyone has a solution ??? The file is 600 mb :P

    Hi all,

    Is Nokia Reading available for Nokia Lumia Windows Phone 8.x devices? Before I had it, but after I reset my Lumia 820 in order to get the new Developer Preview, I do not find it anymore. On the windowsphone.com it is stated that this app is for WP7.5 devices. Any ideas?
