iSilo is a much better program for reference material than eReader. I have both on my T3 (along with uBook and Mobipoocket too!), using eReader primarily for books (literature) and iSilo for reference as well as literature. It's so much easier to move about within an iSilo document versus eReader, as one is often apt to do when consulting a reference. I also feel that iSilo does a superior job of handling graphics (maps, photos, illustrations etc.) than eReader does.

Conversely, I think that eReader's autoscroll operates in a much smoother, more unobtrusive fashion than iSilo's. I also think it's much easier to bookmark (and unbookmark) pages in eReader. Both of these attributes seem more important for literature than for references...
