You're asking for a book reader app and some books to read in it? Just install the Google Play Books app from the Play Store, then launch it and search for and download some free books (and you may need to access the menu and choose to use the app in offline mode). Alternately, you can try the Kindle app for Android. As a final alternative, you can install a different book reader app, like Aldiko, and then download some free books from
The Gutenberg Project
and manually put them on your device/card. From one of those sources, you should be able to find a free (and legal) copy of just about any book or story originally published before 1921 or so (like Sherlock Holmes).
