TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
And the Kindle app is really slick, especially if you are using it for texts in different languages and want to also use foreign language dictionaries. I use it for both English and Italian texts, and I can look up words from texts in either language. Having said that, you have nothing to lose by trying other apps. Nook and Kindle are both free. So is, I think, Aldiko and several others.

For Android, there are Kindle and Nook apps, just for starters. Then there's Aldiko, which reads ePub and PDF formats, is super-stable, sports the best-designed interface of the three, and IMO is the best of the lot.
Regarding iBooks, if you plan to use it only as a reader, should be no problem. However, if you plan to use it to create and sell your own e-books, be aware that the EULA mandates that you must sell your creations only in the iBooks store and nowhere else.
