    What if you lose your internet connection? Is there a way to download the ebooks so you can put them on your iPhone and use them with the Books.app? I'd rather have them on the phone than rely on an internet connection so I can read.

    i think that was the most importaint point just there :P

    Nice site, though an offline mode is a must.

    i use Stanza (free on the app store) and love that app. i added drankmalk.com's source and have already read more than 30 books on my phone... as i travel a lot it's a great way to have a pocket library!

    Yeah, reading on iPhone will mess up your eyes. I think technology is taking away from the good ol' days of the feel of real paper on your fingers.

    everything is electronic now...

    Off topic, I was comparing the screen of the iPhone to the Blackberry Bold. Blackberry Bold wins hands down... Sorry to say...

    Sounds like you're "addicted" to that app...

    30 books on your iPhone? Kudos...

    Try ebook collection over at ipmart-forum.com. They have hundred of books fully categorized. The forum is a mess though, and shady.
