    does using an ebook reader on the droid kill the battery quickly? I would think it would since the screen will be active the whole time.....just wondering if it's worth finding a good reader or not.

    dgoakill, I have found it will drain the battery a lot since you are using the screen, but it will vary depending on your screen brightness of course. I'm not sure if the CPU in the Droid scales back cycles when being used only for light loads, so that could result in a better battery. I haven't seen that it does or doesn't, if anyone knows, please post that, as I would be interested to know.

    Also:

    I am trying to find an ereader that works like ubook does for my pocket pc. Sadly, ubook doesn't work on Android and the author said a lot of the code is for Windows only, so not sure if he will make android version.

    this is ubook:

    GowerPoint.com

    If anyone knows of an android program that will read text files, that's all I want. I was using JJ Reader, then I realized it was cutting off lines and that's annoying. Also JJ Reader won't let me keep the text files in a zip archive. (though that's not major, all of my ebooks are in zip files since I had been using ubook for so many years).

    Thanks!

    Has anybody found a way to check out books from Library2Go and download to a reader on the Droid?
