What is the best ebook reader on Windows?

I want to read ebook on EeePC.
I have tried Mobipocket reader, Microsoft reader, FBReader, iSilo and Haalireader.

I'd like to know other good readers.

BTW: besides FBReader, any others can also read Plucker?

fbreader works well, though I could wish that it had an option for a 2-up view.

That's kinda like asking what is the best car. It depends on one's needs. I personally use the reader in calibre for ePubs, etc. and Adobe Acrobat (not the Reader) for PDFs. But, that's me.

Which of these readers allow for background/text colour change?

I mean anyone who uses mtextreader will know that that software has an option where we can use different colour schemes...

Except Word is there any pc software which does that?

Some of the newer readers (e.g. Kindle for PC, Nook for PC) have very few color options.

FBReader and uBook support multiple DRM-free formats and are highly customizable. Two format-specific readers with background/text color change are MobiPocket Reader and eReader (which also has textured background options).

Mobipocket reader supports background colour change?

I am asking about the PC version...I'm actually using that software and I see no option to change background or text colour...


--------

Wallcraft,I can't thank you enough for pointing me in the right direction...

All these months I've been using Mobipocket and never knew such options existed.Just checked the official site and found out how to change BG and text color...

The new blue background I've just kept will reduce the strain on my eyes...
