Manybooks.net (http://www.manybooks.net) is a clearly laid-out free e-book site which offers all Project Gutenberg (http://www.gutenberg.net/) texts in various formats for download. As of late, Manybooks also supports the Sony Librie LRF format, thanks to some reverse-engineering we discussed (http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2544) earlier!

Other supported e-book formats:
- Plucker
- iSilo
- Doc
- Rocketbook
- zTXT
- PDf
- eReader
- TCR

This is wonderful news considering that owners of Sony’s Japan-only Librie were until recently constrained to buying DRM-protected e-books that would automatically expire after a sixty-days-use.

Another option to convert your own text to LRF is to use one of the free addon programs (http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2795) recently released as an act of courtesy by Sony (*sarcasm*).

Thanks for the pointer, I'm very impressed by manybooks. I hadn't noticed before, but they have user reviews, offer downloads in a variety of eBook formats, links to wikipedia, and lots more. This is great stuff, so I'm bookmarking it for future use!
