What about the Angus & Robertson ( https://market.android.com/details?id=com.kobobooks.angusrobertson.android&feature=search_result ), and Sony Reader ( https://market.android.com/details?id=com.sony.drbd.mobile.reader&feature=search_result ) applications?

Both are fantastic applications, and one is SPECIFICALLY for the Australian market, with eBooks available from a local retailer (that is of course, Angus & Robertson, if it is not immediately obvious...)!

Hi Gregory,

Thanks for your reply! I hadn't picked up the Sony one. The Angus & Robertson and Borders apps I left alone because their future is uncertain; all Borders stores around Australia are closing, and Angus & Robertson, which is owned by the same parent company as Borders, is on very shaky ground.

At any rate, both apps are powered by Kobo, which I have included :)

Stanza is also compatible with Microsoft .lit files so books can be transferred without going through any tedious conversion, and it connects to the web to find cover art - very cool.
