Clearview, ibooks and bookreader are the best epub reader.

This app also makes some kind of cache file. You can see this by opening couple bigger books and monitoring your disk space.

I didn't mean cache, I meant Library.

When you open an EPUB with iBooks, BookReader, Clearview, or Calibre, these apps add the EPUB to its own library (thus "importing" the EPUB). For most EPUBs that I only want to skim, the "always imports EPUB" approach is annoying. Thus my preference for Murasaki, which is just a reader and not a library manager. Makes it a faster app too. Of course, you can always just delete the EPUB from your library in any of these apps!
