Bookle, an EPUB Reader for Mac OS X

Introducing Bookle, an EPUB Reader for Mac OS X, article.

it’s clear that EPUB is the future. Unfortunately, we haven’t been happy with the best-known EPUB readers for the Mac, such as Calibre, which is cross-platform ugly beyond belief; Stanza, the Mac version of which strips all formatting and graphics and is now obsolete; and EPUBReader, which requires Firefox and isn’t Mac-like.
[...] Enter Bookle — a straightforward, elegant EPUB reader for Mac OS X that maintains your library of EPUBs, available now from the Mac App Store for $9.99.

mothThere's always FBReader

As for Calibre and Sigil they really aren't readers but power tools for management and authoring of EPUB books.

While I haven't used Sigil, Calibre is an indispensable tool for format conversion and loading of a huge number of different ereaders. Ugly but very powerful.

There is also ibis Reader, browser-based.
(Surely both have their limitations.)

True, Calibre is confusing, but it can do a lot, as you say.
