    Wow, the irony is astounding. I was thinking today “Maybe I should look into some kind of eBook solution because I want to read Sherlock Holmes.”

      Beige, you can read all of the original Holmes on Aldiko and it’s free.

      I do want this app. I hope that more magazines add an Android app soon.

      +1 for Aldiko. It’s a great eBook reader and there’s plenty of Sherlock Holmes there.

      Do you, by any chance, own the same dictionary as Alanis Morissette?

  • AndMac

    The annotation and highlighting features are missing though :(

    Actually, what is ironic is that Kindle releases an Android app before the Nook.

    Could this work with a rooted Nook? :P
    If that’s the case, Amazon will be my e-book provider of choice. I like being able to view my books however I like, wherever I like :)
    A clever move, Amazon, a clever move.

      We’ll have to wait and see. The app will likely be released in the next month or so. Hopefully then we’ll have more details on what devices this will work with. Would be really awesome on a rooted Nook though :) I might have to get a Nook if that’s the case.

    I dont understand people reading books on phones. The screen is way too small. For me anyway. I can do articles like for news and blogs..but long term hour+ enjoyment reading? The eye strain will drive me bonkers.
    I am however looking forward to reading and comics on tablets. I held off on the Ipad craze for the first good android one that comes out. Heres hoping its soon.

    I like the fact that more quality apps are coming out for Android. With all this I hope more reviews will be done for these like there is on the RawApps website.
