    For those of you who like to read I would like to recommend a new program - ruBooks! Its features are:
    - support for fb2 files (very popular in russian internet) including zip files
    - autoscroll
    - color schemes
    - access from any directory under '/var'
    - autosplit of big files if chapters are not presented
    - basic support of doc/xls/pdf files
    also, since the program is based on Books application, it includes all its features like support of txt/html files, landscape view...

    How to install:
    add repository http://colel.info/repo.xml and find program under Productivity category in installer.
    Organize your library as you wish under /var

    How to create fb2 book:
    use doc2fb program to convert your books. If someone is so kind as to host such books, you can download it using Safari Download plugin. No more hassle with WinSCP...

    Try it and you would love it!

    What do you mean by 'basic support of doc/xls/pdf files'?

    you can view just fine, but it is a little buggy. Like for example there is not scaling for lanscape mode, no zoom on double tap, etc...
