For non-DRM books and DRM books using Adobe DRM the EZ Reader will work. Currently this mean B/N ePUB books should work fine. At some point B/N wants to switch to their social DRM mechanism used on eReader files today which B/N also sells. At that point in the future there may need to be a firmware update.
Check our wiki for all sorts of sites for buying eBooks. Generally the entry in the wiki tells the formats available which can be compared to the formats your EZ Reader supports.
