This is what I use to read eBooks downloaded from Project Gutenberg.
I don't have data services, so I cannot mail the eBook to myself as an attachment. I move it over with eFile as a DOC file. The font is one of those all capitals fonts, but it does have upper and lower case. There is no way to change the font, that I know of. To bookmark my place, when I am finished reading a section I use [Alt] [Escape] to bring up the menu of applications, and select Home Screen. Don't use [Escape] alone or you will lose your place when you open the file next time. To go back to the eBook where I left off I use [Alt] [Escape] and select Doc Viewer.
I always have a book or 2 with me, just like I had on my old Palm devices. I liked the book readers better on Palm, but my 7100 BB has the great advantage of surviving drops better.
