Using the gentouch as a ebook reader

Since hearing about the device on droid-life weeks I spent 3 hours a day calling kmarts around the area and finally caught one in the online store and ordered it. It should be here in 2 days according to UPS. I mainly bought this for some web browsing and a ebook reader. I was just wondering if the 256ram was an issue when opening some PDFs. Has anyone has an issue with this?

For those reading epub format, what reader are you using?I was using Aldiko and having no problems. (I also use it on a Droid, but while the screen is really pretty, I would prefer the pixel size of this tablet.)After installing linckracker's v3, the program now has issues paging through a chapter. Each page turn goes a a few pixels too far to the left. So by the time you've gone through a few pages, you're missing a bunch on the left and getting a corresponding amount of the left side of the next page. It looks like something has reset the width of screen by a few pixels.I checked a bit on Google and found very little. XDA had a couple of people mention the issue, but no one responded.So I'm wondering if this is fixable or if a different program would be better. Any thoughts?
[quote name='RampantOctopus;48923]I'm having the exact same problem' date=' wrote it up, and sent an e-mail to Aldiko. I'll let you know if I get a response. Curious about your mention of the clockwork mod being possibly related-- I can't imagine that it is, but now that you mention it, I never had the problem before I carried out the mod (and I did revert to older versions of Aldiko that had worked right before but that didn't solve the problem).[/QUOTE'] Any word from the Aldiko folks?
