Is there an android distribution that presents a stripped-down ereader interface and nothing more? The reason for this is just a matter of ultimate usability.

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

Android doesn't have "distros", and your custom ROM options are going to be heavily influenced by what device you have. This is possibly covered by Where can I find stock or custom ROMs for my Android device? – eldarerathis Mar 6 '13 at 22:16
This is a classic case of asking about the supposed solution instead of asking about the problem to be solved. – Al E. Mar 6 '13 at 22:55

Android is just a platform like OS that anyone can add toppings (apps) to.

If you want a really clean minimal OS good for E-reading then install Titanium Backup or Root Uninstaller, and just uninstall all of it (including default Homescreen) and just leave your favorite E-reading app (Kindle, Aldiko, Cool Reader, whatever). This way you will have a dedicated E-book reader like device without resorting to flashing a new ROM.
