I was wondering what all you avid readers are using to read books on your iPhones? I have used iphone bookshelf for awhile now, but lately i've noticed that when I transfer the perfectly good PDF file to bookshelf over WiFi, it has been losing parts somewhere in the transfer. Words, sentences and I believe even paragraphs. I am sure that the PDF files themselves are fine because ive compared them to the ones on my iphone. Please help!

Yep I really like Stanza out of all the apps I've tested so far, plus it's free which is always a bonus :)

figured it out... so far stanze seems to be better simply because of the search function. Instead of flipping through the whole book, i just searched for the chapter and it took me right to it. thanks for the input

I don't have any pdf books. Does Stanza work with that format?

So, after using Stanza a little bit today I realize that it's way better than bookshelf.

Yep Stanza works with pdfs and you can transfer to your iphone app using the stanza mac app. I've tried several different apps and always stick with stanza :)

I hope they are planning on working on an iPad specific app. Didn't realize until a couple days ago that Amazon had bought out Lexcycle a year ago.
