Recently I purchased a Blackberry Playbook, it took my a while to make the leap as I wanted to try out an Asus eePad Transformer tablet first. 
I wanted this device to be primarily a web page browser and an ebook reader, both of which it does superbly. 

I'm an avid user of Kobo and I find the native Kobo reader to be quite good, it also syncs my bookmarks over to my BB Bold 9900 (which is now my 10th Blackberry) so I can do a little reading even when I don't have the Playbook.
For novels acquired in different methods I've been using the Reader for ePub and Kindle which cost $0.99 in Appworld and has some good reviews. You could alternatively install Moon+ Reader via side-loading the Android app.

The Blackberry Bridge functionality is also way beyond what I imagined and I'm quite happy with it.
