Someone on the fedora-india list recently mentioned this:

This looks like a nice alternative to FBreader plus much more but i haven't 
tried it yet, since
a. There isn't an rpm for it yet
b. It depends on python-2.6 which is not available for F10 afaict

Maybe someone who has tried it can chip in with their opinion ...

cheers,
