Good E-Book reader for Blackberry?
 
Anyone know of a good e-book reader for the Blackberry other than Mobipocket, BeamBerry or Wattpad (all of which are garbage in my view, especially Mobipocket reader which never syncs properly, produces a stream of incorrect errors such as not enough memory or Mobipocket not installed, and whines endlessly for me to put in my Blackberry password every nanosecond)? Free is preferable, but if there is a decent enough product I'd be willing to pay for reliability.

Strange. I use Mobipocket (first on my 7280, and now on Bold) and have never had any of those issues.

I too have been using mobipocket reader and have found to encounter a lot of problems for my 8330 Curve RIM. I don't know if the (ROXIO MEDIA MANAGER) is the problem or just got a bad download for the Mobipocket Reader.

Hmmmm!

For what it's worth, Mobipocket reader can almost get me to tear my hair out. Basically, it installs OK on both my computer and my Blackberry, but getting it to actually send documents to the Blackberry is a nightmare. I get sync failures, I am told Mobipocket isn't installed on the Blackberry and am prompted to install it (which fails), I am told there is an update for Mobipocket on my Blackberry and prompted to install it (which fails), and I am told the documents can't be sent to my Blackberry because there is no storage space available (which is not the case; over 40 Mb of free space). It's like an endless loop. Remove, reinstall, try to sync - maybe one time in 20 it actually sends a document to the Blackberry. New versions don't change anything. Buggy, unreliable junk. I need a good document reader I can just sync files with and have it work every time.
