Nexus 7 or Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 or Nook HD

Hi everybody - so happy to have found this forum. And hoping you can advise me.

I've borrowed a Nook HD for inspection and finding it oh-so closed down. But I love it for borrowing library books as I can sideload them from my PC and use them with the Nook reader, which I like much better than the Overdrive reader.

It seems that the Nexus 7 or Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 are more open devices primarily for downloads but I cant seem to put a finger on the reading aspect, which was why I started this hunt in the first place. But I'm liking the other uses it would offer.

So, my questions are the following:

Are there downloadable readers (or built in for that matter) that provide a Nook-like experience - font adjustment, text size, margins, backgrounds, search functions and smooth, fast page turns? I found Bluefire which has a download for Android and have seen others mentioned in the forums.

As well, when I borrow library books, I download to Adobe Digital Editions and then copy the epub file from my PC to the Nook. Can the Nexus 7 or Samsung Galaxy handle this as well?

And then the expandable memory of the Samsung - I'm not a big buyer of books, movies, etc. but would be likely to download apps. I have two to three library books on a device at a time. Based on this usage, would 32 gb non-expandable be sufficient? I like the Nexus 7 better than the Samsung but the space limitation is concerning.

Many thanks in advance - and apologies for the long post.
Cathy
