Just searching around, I'm unable to find who the developer actually is.
If you go to books.google.com, there's no mention of it. If this were developed by Google, you'd most likely see this all over their pages.
For those that have installed this: In the license, does it say who develops this product?
The software doesn't have an "About" screen that I can find. It just has a link to the gooreader.com site. So I looked in the GoDaddy WHOIS database. Here's what's there:

So to answer your question, it appears that Lysenkov Aleksandr Aleksandrovich owns the site, and thus probably designed the software.
