I think it's obvious that the publisher intends wide-spread use of the text in a range of ebook formats. Let's just assume that for now. How best to use purchased multiformat texts for Reader? PDF isn't a very good option, and RTF isn't offered.

Are the books in protected format? If they are, it's still illegal to transform them into another format - despite what the publisher wants :-) I'm not familiar with most of those formats, so I don't know if they include DRM or not.

But anyway, to answer your question, I've had good luck with converting .LIT files to other formats (both RTF and BBeB.) I haven't had a lot of luck with PDFs.
