Reading textbooks on an Android tablet

If I get a Google Nexus 7, will I be able to use it to reliably read textbooks? My college primarily uses Pearson textbooks for the courses I'm taking. Does anyone have experience with those textbooks on an Android tablet?

Friends of mine have used iPads for their textbooks, but the cost of an iPad is beyond my reach. A Nexus 7, however, is something I can afford! I'd love to be able to carry all my books in a tablet. I don't want to invest in it, though, and find out that I won't really be able to use it for the primary reason I'm buying it.
The reviews for the Pearson eText app on Google's Play store are not inspiring, but it looks like the app basically works—it's just sluggish. Do you have experience with reading Pearson textbooks on an Android tablet? What's it like?
