I am more than a little surprised at the omission of Stanza from the list. Sure, since Amazon bought Lexcycle, there is concern about the software’s future. For the moment it appears to be going strong. I have no idea if the recently released 2.0 version sends any data back to Amazon or not, but at least with regards to acquiring e-books, any site or service that offers titles in the ePub format should work just fine with Stanza. You can even load titles directly into the software without needing to connect to an online store or service.
