I found something interesting on Freading last night: they have a pretty good selection of the Barnes & Noble Classic Editions. As far as I know, those are only sold by B&N for use with Nook... since B&N uses their own proprietary DRM, there's no legal way to read them on other eink readers (unless you hack a Sony and load the Nook app). Apparently Overdrive carries them as well although only one of my local libraries has a couple of them (Wizard of Oz and Alice in Wonderland). The Overdrive versions actually have covers in the EPUB while the Nookbook versions don't. I'm not sure about the Freading versions. Just figured I'd point it out.
