    Just downloaded this.

    Fantastic!

    I also downloaded it to my PC.

    One nice thing... the Sony reader can also open the B&N books.

    My wife takes her Sony reader on trips, doesn't want to take
    the iPad on a business trip, so now we pay one price to read
    on both devices!

    A lot of page customization features.:D

    What app are you reading Fictionwise books on? A native iPad one? The first ebooks I ever bought were from there and I hadn't found a way to transfer them to the iPad yet. Was hoping the B&N app would let you access Fictionwise bookshelf, since they own it, but can't seem to find that function, or a way to get them into any iPad ereader app.

    Just get the iPhone app "ereader" in the app store... yes you have to 2X it so the text isn't perfect, but I have read one book on it already, and lived to tell the tail :D

    Anyway, you can access your fictionwise or ereader account from within the app and get the books you already bought...

    I too was disappointed that the B&N app does not import the fictionwise and ereader books.... I think it is pretty clear that B&N plans to eventually close both sites and funnel the customers into their main site.... but it would be nice if their own app would support the stores they own..... oh well.......

    The B&N app looks pretty good but... store access is clumsy, it sends you to Safari.... and if I mess around with settings, it crashes a lot.... but I am sure an update will come....I am just glad they got something out there.....

    I have the iPhone ereader app, but since things with a lot of text don't look too good at 2X I hadn't tried it. Will have to give it a try.

    You can upload your on-DRM epub books through iTunes and read it using iBooks. I just tried this last night :)

    Please look at the top of your screen and read the title of this thread. We are talking about the B&N reader, not iBooks. iBooks becomes unstable if you load too many books on it, so I was looking for another ereader app. B&N reader was announced and "SUPPORTS EPUB FORMAT" was assured. Nope, sorry, FAIL. It does not support MY EPUB books, only theirs that you purchase off of them. What do I care that you support a particular file type if I can't load my own files of that type and read them on your (B&N) app? Which is why I say that I will probably delete this app (B&N) in hopes a real ereader app that is not unstable is produced by someone.
