Ebook readers for Android, Amazon.com's Kindle Reader is a huge hit. One of the things that made Amazon.com so popular by excluding access to its huge library of Kindle books is that Amazon.com provides an application for most mobile devices, including: Android, iPhone and laptops running Windows or Mac operating systems. The Kindle app remembers where it left off from any Internet-connected device, so you can start reading on your iPod and finish on your Android.
One thing to keep in mind when you build your Amazon.com library is to keep Amazon's books with Kindle readers. They use proprietary formats instead of the industry-standard ePub format and it only locks you to buy books from Amazon.com.

The bookstore has a large selection of free books from Google's large database of self-scanned public domain library books, as well as e-books and audiobooks.
