woodyword: sufficient part of fbreader (including book model/presentation engine) is platform-independent, so I think it is relatively simple to make an j2me port. I'm not sure about the speed: j2me is much slower than android machine.

There is no docs, sorry. Please ask any questions in our google group (named fbreader).

Hi, I am thinking about writing an epub reader for Java ME, and I thought I could use FBReaderJ as a basis. However it seems that it is too tightly coupled to Android.
Do you think it is feasible to do it? If so, how would you go about it? Are there any design docs about FBReaderJ that I could use?

This is really the best and FASTEST ebook reader on android so far. one thing: i would really like to have a button so that i can rotate the screen, or in preferences a option to stick to a specific mode (portrait or landscape). currently i can only read in Portrait or Auto Rotation, and Auto Rotation sucks (sorry..). When reading in bed lying sideways Auto Rotation changes orientation very often.

Any reason this isn't in the Android marketplace? I hunted around in the marketplace for quite a while looking for an eBook reader; after downloading two disappointments decided there must be nothing out there. Then I stumbled on this!

While I was initially disappointed by the lack of native support for a wider variety of formats, I found that after I paired this on my phone with calibre on my desktop (for handling format conversions and metadata) I had the best possible portable eBook reader I could ask for. This trumps Stanza, which I was using on my iPod, and also Mobipocket Reader, which I was using on my Windows Mobile device.

Thank goodness you're out there, or I would have had to keep my iPod around just to read books.
