calibre ebook management software is excellent.

An ebook reader is included which handles a wide range of formats. calibre can convert between ebook formats too.

It's available in the Ubuntu repositories or at http://calibre-ebook.com/download_linux. calibre has a powerful range of tools, not least of which is an ebook server which your tablet and mobile can access.
