Amazon destroying competitors
- Stinks. They earlier bought Mobipocket Reader and immediately killed support for the Palm OS -- it's still by far my favorite for reading, as it can do barely-glowing-dim-orange-on-black for midnight reading without losing dark adaptation. Great for camping under the stars.

- I use several readers. iBooks, Kindle, Nook, and Bluefire, which interfaces with iTunes to download library books. I use the Kindle mostly since my library now has the option of downloading directly to Kindle.

Used to love Stanza
- I just downloaded ShuBook ... looks great ... but anyone know if the Stanza files backed up to my computer are going to be accessible to ShuBook or will I need to redownload my ole favs ... also anyone know of a good audio book app with free books?

Stanza is Dead
- It breaks my heart, but when I upgraded to iOS 5 I found that none of my ePUBs worked anymore. Turns out it is because Lexcycle was purchased by Amazon, and they aren't interested in supporting a rival platform. This is very disappointing as Stanza is HANDS DOWN the best ePUB app I've ever used. As a jail-breaker, iBooks won't run on my device (until there is a DRM work-around patch). So I would suggest ShuBook (free). The interface is pretty generic, but it has built in repositories for gutenberg et al, syncs easily with iTunes, and is designed to read English or Chinese and Korean characters natively, and can adjust L->R orientation T->B scrolling for character reading.

- I love this app. It is easy on the eyes. It makes the pages look like real book pages. You can tint the page to sepia and change the font and change the size. Downloading a new book is very easy and payment is thru your iTunes account.

iphone ebook app
- The Kindle app. The ebooks through Amazon are significantly cheaper than other ebook stores and there are some GREAT free ebooks (not just the classics). The ease of downloading into the iphone is great too.
