Calibre for the win
My Dad has Clibre on his PC. I noticed it cannot be downloaded onto the Playbook? How to you use Calibre for reading books on your playbook???

Sorry I mean for converting on the pc.
I don't like things clogging up in folders on PlayBook so I have epub and mobi on PC instead of multiple files on PlayBook

Just realized it is called GO Book - not GoBooks - http://apps.goodereader.com/android-apps/top-andro
and this is a review that gives a lot of screenshots at the bottom so you can get a sense of what to expect http://www.androidtapp.com/go-book/
(it's soooooo not MyLibra!)
If they are in Canada - especially Ontario - then OverDrive Media Console is also good to install so that they can borrow ebooks from their local library through the app. They can do a location-based search here to see if it's worth installing: http://search.overdrive.com/ and the app is available here http://appworld.blackberry.com/webstore/content/80
I've heard that the Moon+ Reader for Android is also very very good but haven't found a Playbook version of it yet to try out.
Good luck! Do post back if you find any that you think worth recommending.
