If I understand your question correctly you are wondering about advantages of CM7 over Rooted Stock OS right?
In that case, you get a more pure Android experience, the Google Play store is raiser to access. You also knock anything Android can do either way but with CM7 some annoying issues are fixed like settings screens appear correctly (no more white on white or black on black).
While you can read books on CM7 via the BN Nook for Android app, magazines and newspapers are off limits. You also have to use a modded version of hulu plus to get that going.
I personally, tried it and went back to rooted stock OS but I read magazines.
