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 has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new 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.
