Both.

I too have a N7 and I don't know how much bigger. On the large setting 5 books fit in the screen, maybe a size where 4 books (with a small top and bottom margin) fit nicely in the screen. After given the option I may find out, like you, that it is too big, but it is nice to have the option.

The download time is a one time hit per book, correct? Where are the covers stored? I'd like to see how much space is actually dedicated to them.

At some point down the road the ability to change background and font colors would be great.

Super job with this app, Thanks!!
