Default Best reading app

Check out Overdrive. It's the app public libraries utilize when you check out their digital books. But I've found it has the most options to customize any book you download, and after trying most of the other sites, use it almost exclusively because it's so easy and reliable.

Default Favorite ereader

I've tried them all and I love FBReaderJ the best. I don't want to have to import my books into a library; I open them by folder and FBReaderJ makes that easier than any other ereader. It is extremely easy to customize everything from background to font size and it's free.

I really like the Kindle app. I just wish it showed page numbers.

Thumbs up FBReader is the very best reader

And if you really want to get your reader looking and acting like a real paper book look in the settings. Turn on the paper curling option on how you wish to translate from page to page then you swipe pages. True it really doesn't add any real benefit to the program but the eye candy it adds is sweet indeed.

I like FB reader too. I tried Aldiko and didn't like it but I can't remember why now. I do wish FB reader had a bookmark feature that worked by touching the corner of the page but other than that I really like it.

I have tried all of those reader, but my favorite by far is Moon Reader. I bought the $5 version because it has text to speech which I love. It looks fabulous. The book covers are large and crisp. You can create shelves. It is completely customizable. Not only do you get to choose things like background color, but you get to decide what each touch on the screen does. I set mine so swiping down the left side adjusts the brightness and swiping the right adjusts font size.

I've used several, but one thing I do like about CM7 is that the Nook for Android app that I got from Google actually seems to work better than than the stock app it shipped with.
