Best epub reader/library manager - recommendations?

I am off this morning to pick-up a HTC-Flyer which will be my first Android device. I am an avid reader and I can see there are many reader apps available. So I'm looking for advice as far as the apps that would best fit my particular situation.

The HTC-Flyer runs Android 2.3. I currently manage my e-book library using calibre. I have about 500 e-books and would really like to manage my epubs in one application, and I would like to be able to continue to use calibre to manage my e-books, if at all possible. So, if anybody has had experience with the Android calibre app I would appreciate information on that as well. (I'm not exactly sure, what the Android app does.)

I will be using the Kindle app, but most of my books are epubs. I would like to have as many customization options, like backgrounds, margins etc,. The ability to directly download from public domain and epub sites would also be nice. I would like to avoid having a Kobo, Sony, Nook etc., app for every store and going through the "now where did I buy that?" exercise.

So if anybody has suggestions, I would be greatly appreciative. Looking forward to entering the world of Android.
