So, for something that doesn't focus on poor wireless signals or odd screen dimensions, I'll turn to eBooks.
They work well. Very well. I viewed a book on my Nexus without any problems. I had to install the Bluefire Reader app, but that was easy.
In my first blog post I mentioned I didn't know where downloaded documents went. I could view files in other apps (Bluefire opens all PDF files I view), but donwloaded documents were a myster to me. The other day while looking for something else, I discovered the Downloads app on the Nexus app screen (a set of pre-installed, Google-dominant apps).
I had a "duh" moment.
