My iPad looks like a bookstore strip mall. The iBooks app on one end. The Kindle app on the other. Borders and Barnes & Noble are crammed in the middle.

Now, it sure would be nice to consolidate all my ebooks into one app. With minimal purchases, I'm already forced to pause before launching: Did I buy that book through Amazon or iBooks? Or was it B&N?

But the upside to all this app abundance is that I've got access to growing collections. If iBooks doesn't have a title (which is too often the case), I can hit up Amazon or B&N or Borders. Syncing books and page locations across devices is fantastic, too (it's one of those "everything is amazing" technologies we take for granted).

That said, I'm curious to know which of these apps people use regularly. Has one emerged as your go-to e-reader? Please weigh in through the comments or via this post's associated poll.

I use Aldiko, Stanza, and Calibre to read my ebook purchases, downloads, or creations.
