Kindle for the iPhone is a good reader if you don't mind the small screen size, and it is convenient for adding Kindlebooks from the iPhone.
The UI is simple and un cluttered, it is just for reading - as well it should be.

Thanks for sharing, Paul!  I think you'll get a kick out of @macgirl's review of the Kindle for iPhone because the title is I may go blind but I'm enjoying myself.  I downloaded this, now I just have to find a book to read so that I can check out this simple and uncluttered UI that you speak of! :)

If you own an iphone and are an avid reader this is a great app. If you own a kindle this is a must have app. If you don't own a kindle and have been thinking about getting one the Kindle App is a great way to test your ability to read digitally before investing in a Kindle.       For all the reasons I love the kindle I equally enjoy this app. It's not as full featured as the Kindle but it provides the same convenience of the kindle: Lower cost books Access to …

I'll be the first to admit that I don't read a much as I should.  When I do read, I enjoy it, but for some reason, finding the time to read has become more and more difficult lately.  For a recent flight I thought I'd purchase a book using Kindle for the iPhone to see if perhaps a technology gadget could get me to start reading again more.      While I didn't get to read at all during my cross-country flights (anyone flown with a 9 month old recently?), I have …

I didn't think this application would interest me. The thought of reading an entire book on my iPhone didn't seem like something I would enjoy. Considering that I haven't had time to read a "real" book cover to cover in a decade I thought I would give it a shot. I have now finished my third book in less than two weeks. Having it on my iPhone has enabled me reading opportunities that I wouldn't have had before. I am reading everywhere with a device that is already on me at all times.  It's easy …

The "Kindle" is a e-book reader that uses "electronic ink" instead of an LCD screen for it's display.  It's offered through Amazon.com, but there are other readers that use similar technology.... most notably the ones from Sony.   But these new readers are pretty expensive.       But now, for owners of an Apple Iphone or Ipod Touch, there's a free App from Amazon (Also called the "Kindle") that lets you Buy, Download, and Read the books offered in the "Kindle …
