Hot on the heels of the Kindle app (ok maybe not so much, it's been a few weeks):

NOOK for Windows 8 v1.5 adds new features:

• Simplified user interface makes it easier to browse and search
• Faster performance in app opening, scrolling and page turning
• Download in the background while you read, shop or use other apps
• Side load ePub and PDF files from the local file system :D
• Search icon on home and library screens
• Type in your library or the shop to instantly search
• Highlight words in books using multiple colors
• Add notes to books
• Find words or phrases in books
• Lookup word definitions in the dictionary
• Manage subscriptions
 
Performance is greatly improved from when I tried it, though it did crash once going to shop. 
 
Definitely a better reader than the Kindle app right now.
