iPad epub reader that isn't iBooks?

Hi there, my Dad is getting an iPad and wants to read books from our epub collection on it, but here in the UK we won't be getting iBooks for some time.

Until we do what's the best epub reading app other than iBooks for the iPad?

I hate to say this, but there isn't one that's good enough yet. Without iBooks, the iPad won't do well enough to read ePub.

You are getting iBooks the same time the iPad ships there.

Or, is your dad getting one earlier? (like Stephen Fry and David Hockney )

readMe is ok, but has some quirks. iBooks is the best of the bunch so far...
