I've been looking at the Note as a reader too, so thanks so much for sharing your experience with it, Clive.
I've used fbREader too, and its excellent. I also forked out for CoolReader+pro and find that equally as good. fbReader remains free with all its features so its a definite winner.
In the meantime, until I get the Note, I'm still doing Stanza on my iPhone. Oh well.
