Fictionwise: multi-genre ebook store; books available in "multiformat" are downloadable in LRF, and several other formats (which allows you to convert & tweak them yourself, if you care to spend the time).

Baen's Webscriptions: Science fiction, includes many current books & older ones that have been converted to ebook. Their monthly webscriptions include a bundle of 5-7 books for $15; books are purchasable individually for around $5 each.

Feedbooks.com: free ebooks, available in ePub or PDF, including PDFs formatted to fit Sony Readers.

Manybooks.net: more free ebooks--wider selection than feedbooks, but many are straight Gutenberg imports with no reformatting.

Some readers prefer Feedbooks' formatting; others prefer Manybooks'. Manybooks puts a blank line between paragraphs; Feedbooks indents the first line instead.

The sixteen free Harlequin romances are available in ePub format. However, Harlequin's standard ebooks are only available as DRM'd .pdf, .lit or .mobi.
