I'm also noticing that Good Reader is $5. Are there any free alternatives that work fairly well? I've downloaded Stanza, but it keeps freezing after a few seconds.
I think the gray margins are due to the aspect ratio of the document you are viewing, not due to the iBook. It is flush with the left and right edges. To maintain a correct and accurate aspect ratio you will occasionally see this sort of thing. I have some PDF's that have gray bars on the left and right sides as they happen to be a bit taller than they are wide.
