Need a reader for my Samsung s3650

Hi I have searched the forum but havent come up with anything for my phone type. I hope others may have found a good java reader.
Samsung uses their own OS for this mobile (Corby in US, Genio touch in UK), and touchwiz 1.5. They dont have any widget for reading, and the doc viewer wont open large txt files. I can get jar files to install, but finding a suitable reader is difficult.
I used to use libris (jar) on my nokia s40 phone but I havent found out yet if I can assign a button to control the reader. Bythe way I recommend it if you have a supported phone, as it can cope with a very basic java heap.
I found an interesting program written by tequilacat, which is very customisable and wil create books, each of which is in the form of a .jar and .jad file, and unfortunately although I have granted access, needs to be given permission each time its opened.
I saw that the bookworm program mentioned on this board may work here, as I can download it with wap. I dont think its ideal for me though as its not saved to the phone.

I used the tcbr by tequilacat; its best on samsung touchphones (Jet etc) and palingo widgets setting. You can set the screen size which differs of course.
There are many settings to heck out including assigning key presses. On a touchphone like the genio, the best choices are screen touch settings. Be sure to set the menu access, as you will need this once its installed.

Once installed, the java midlet needs to be given access, set it as allowed ask once only.

Touch the screen and the menu is accessed.
This enables me to set the page down to any button I choose.

Now I can read my books on my Genio!

I really like the speed and responsiveness of the screen, and now that I can read on it I am pleased.
