Honto.JP E-books

#1
There's an ancient thread about honto.jp here, http://forum.koohii.com/thread-11167.html for those interested in some talk about physical books.

I know there are a lot of people here that use honto from comments buried in other topics, but I'm not sure how many are using the e-book features.

In any case, I finally registered for a honto account, and bought an SF大賞 book ('My Humanity' if you're interested) seeing as how I'm a big SF fan and I really don't know the Japanese SF scene so starting with prizewinners seems good. The interface wasn't terribly intuitive but I managed to buy the book and get it loaded into the honto reader on my PC so at least I'm going to be able to read it.

However, I'd really like to read these books on an Android device. I've been reading a bunch of web novels and google books on my iphone, and I've really gotten quite comfortable with reading on my phone. I might even by a tablet for a better reading experience if I can get this to work.

Unfortunately, when I go to install the honto app on my phone, I'm told it's not available in my region. Theoretically I've downloaded my book, but poking around in the honto directory I don't see any obvious data files (nor in documents or app data). Well, if I go through enough tools and search methods I'll perhaps find it eventually, or I could use an disk differences check and buy another book to find where they're kept but... eh.

So my question is basically, does anyone know how to take locate a book from honto on the PC and transfer it to android to be read in a 3rd party reader, and/or how to evade region locking to install the honto app on an android device?

If worst comes to worst I guess I could consider buying a windows tablet but I'd really rather not.
