My favourite is uBook. It does everything I could want. It's not free but it's worth the $15 price because of its versatility. I found it a little confusing to use at first, but after experimenting and getting the settings I prefer, it works beautifully.

My least favourite is Mobipocket because it seems to hate me. It freezes whatever device I have used it on.

I have my fingers crossed that one day the uBook will be available for the iLiad. It will save having to convert my stuff to PDF.

Unfortunately, uBook is not available for Palm devices. Currently, I use Plucker and eReader on my Tapwave Zodiac 2 in Landscape orientation.

I use GrayWeasel which supports anti aliased fonts. Best reader for palm I know, I love "text wrap" auto scrolling.

edit: It seems I cannot post twice in this poll-thread, so here is my answer anyway:

You're not the only one it hates. I still have the free versions on my T3 and my Polaris, never upgrading to the paid versions because they were so very flaky and unstable.

Mobipocket reader is free of charge for more than a year now. I bet most of the "Other" votes are intended for Mobipocket. The poll is therefore rather useless. Far too many popular readers are missing.

GrayWeasel is a modified version of Weasel Reader to support anti aliased fonts. The site is in russian, but you will find the download link.

Mobipocket for RSS and Wikipedia, only
uBook (the best reader, IMHO) for all the rest
