An early list of verified-compatible apps. (Ca. 2011)
http://www.the-ebook-reader.com/nook-touch-root.html

eReading Apps
•Aldiko 2.0 – Works very well, one of the best ereading apps on the Nook Touch. Can read Adobe DRM ebooks, including library ebooks downloaded with the OverDrive app.
•Kindle – The Kindle app works well. The only downside is that there’s extra black flashing when turning pages because the animated page-turns can't be turned off.
•Nook – The Nook Android app works okay. It’s rather slow at times. The main benefit it adds over the Nook’s base reading app is landscape mode.
•Kobo – The Kobo app is buggy. Sometimes it works and other times it doesn’t.
•OverDrive – With this app you can use a web browser (Opera) to browse and download ebooks from the library directly to the Nook Touch. (The newer versions of Overdrive don't need the browser.)
•Google eBooks – This app works and has more features than the built-in app for the iriver Story HD.
•Beam Reader – A paid PDF app with basic features.
•ezPDF Reader – This is the best PDF app for the Nook Touch that I’ve tested. The one downside is excessive screen flashing.
•Moon+Reader
•Cool Reader
•FBReader
•Mantano Reader

News Apps
•Google Reader – This apps seems to work most of the time. Occasionally it force closes when trying to load an article.
•CNN – Works really well as long as you don’t mind reading white text on a black background. Page buttons work for scrolling pages.
•New York Times – Top news stories works, other sections require a subscriptions. The apps seems to work well but has very small text and scrolling can be a little awkward.
•Fox News – This app works pretty well for the most part, scrolling can be tricky at times.
•Engadget
•NewsRob
•News and Weather

More Apps
•Dropbox – Works great for wirelessly transferring files.
•Amazon Appstore – Ironically this app works great on the Nook Touch. Sometimes a download won’t work at first but it will if you keep trying.
•Opera Mobile and Opera Mini Web

I'm thinking you'll have fun with your STR.
