Yeah, you can run CM7 on the Fire too, and I hear it works pretty well. CM9 is pretty much there too, I hear.
And you can use any reader app you want to read various formats without rooting at all.
And if by "purchasing content from any vendor" you mean "Google Play" then you can do that by rooting, too fairly simply.
So get that Fire back!
