Windows phone ereader?

I'm thinking of buying a windows phone and one consideration is whether it supports a good ereader.

My current favorite app is stanza on an ipod touch or ipad, reading mostly non-DRM epub files served from Calibre or the stanza pc program.

What's a good ereader app for a windows phone?

Well, Kindle for Windows Phone 7 is out. I'm sure it's a good eReader app, all of the Kindle apps are good.

I didn't think kindle supports epub or that it would download from a Calibre or stanza server. If so, moving to the kindle reader would be a large hassle

Freda works with epubs and the calibre content server. Nowhere near as good as Mantano Reader for Android or Stanza for iOS, though.

But it's getting there, I hope.

(well I would say that, wouldn't I, being as I am the author of it )

But seriously ... the next update (on Marketplace in about a week's time) will address a bunch of performance and UI issues. And I'm always ready to receive functionality suggestions and feature requests at jim@turnipsoft.co.uk .
