Thanks everyone for the feedback.
I have an unrooted T1 with 1.0.04.12210 and was going to use Morkl's installer for unrooted devices. But now I'm wondering if I should root instead.
Part of me thinks it's better to keep things simple and not root. But another part of me is thinking if I rooted I could try other readers, like FBreader and CoolReader. Any thoughts on those vs. Morkl's modified ereader app?
