Love it, have read multiple books on it already! Easy for when you're in the train or have to wait somewhere, just read a book!

how sad I am - I also can't download this one - says it's not available in my country. Is there a possibility that you could actually put up the actual apps on your site here, instead of just linking them to the Ovi store? I've got a lot of books all in the epub format that I was using on m iPod, but now that I've got the N9 I'd love to transfer them over.

i dont like book lol it still seems nice

Probably my most used app right now. I've never really been a fan of reading on such a small screen, but after downloading this I'm actually liking it. Bookmarking works great and I really like that it measures your progress in percent instead of pages.

Can't seem to read epub books.

I've had no problems with ePub books. But Adobe-DRMed versions, which you'll usually get when you buy e-books online, will not work.

Fortunately it is quite easy to strip this ADEPT DRM from ePub, which I recommend anyway, if you want to enjoy your ebooks for years to come. Search for "ineptepub". There's a plug-in for Calibre as well.

Note: in some countries it is perfectly legal to circumvent DRM for this purpose!

Other than that: two thumbs up for Ionic! The night-mode is very suited for bed time reading without annoying anyone else :)

Just tried this. Simple and working interface, and good readability on books.
