My one complaint regarding the stock reader is that it could use more font size and line spacing choices.
For most other readers it is that most of the ones I have tried do not even have the ability to read and use the css included in the epub. What the stock reader calls "publisher defaults". (NOTE: AIReader doesn't do this either, but its default "eink" settings just seem to format the book exactly as I would like to see it.) For me the ideal reader application would use the css included with the epub with the ability to override some specific settings as selected by the user. Most reader applications have way too many settings for me to attempt to mess with and settings that work on one epub don't work so well on another so I end up playing with the settings each time I change books. So, for me, the stock reader gives me the best, though not perfect, reading experience.
A couple of things to note about me. First, I am an IT professional (UNIX/Linux) and so am very comfortable making modifications to my rooted device. As such, I have been able to configure the fonts I like for the stock reader using adb shell. Second, I read books from many different sources, including B&N (I have to use the stock reader for those anyway). I have enough knowledge to modify formatting inside a DRM free epub, so if it looks weird in the stock reader, I just change the formatting.
