As I see it, since we've had E-Ink readers, we've gotten two new ebook formats. BBeB (LRF) and Wolf. And that's on top of all the others that already exist. WE DON"T NEED MORE FORMATS! WE NEED A STANDARD! That said (loudly), at least we Sony Reader users have options other then the Connect store if we want to purchase ebooks that are not free. Just read the foumrs to find out what the best option is other then the Connect store.

And don't worry about venting. I've gone off and done it. Somewhere around here is a rant about the ebook formats from me I think. Kinda longish.
