Here is a link http://manybooks.net/about/ . They offer almost all the PG books in various download formats.

As for the Italics .. I have to admit that I had not done my homework with regards to this. I will add in Italics and emphasis tonight.
That would be a nice addition!

For the table of contents I will have to check how consistent the PG books actually are, once I have established this then I can create TOC.
Automatic TOC generation is tricky (Mobipocket Creator/Calibre do it using RegEx and HTML tags; BookDesigner does this also very well). It would improve the usefulness of your conversions.

In the process of creating a LRF book I actually do some work on the .txt file and convert it into html so I could use the html versions and cut out a step.
Could you allow the "intermediary" .html to be offered for download as well. That could be used to convert to other formats, like .prc/.mobi using mobigen or .epub using Calibre.

It is a work in progress but I am a very competent programmer and I am confident that I can do almost anything required to create perfect LRF books.

Thanks for sharing this!

How do you convert .html to .lrf? In PDFRead, I used the python pylrs package by Mike Higgins (Falstaff) to produce .lrf from .html containing primarily images and not a lot of text.

Have you seen this similar (but over-the-top) effort before: Converting Project Gutenberg books to SONY Reader?

Here's the direct link to Project Gutenberg for the SONY Reader devices.
