So long as they have no DRM and just a note asking you to not share the book I see no problem. Whether the author chooses to sell their book or give it away doesn't remove their right to say where it's distributed from.
I like the idea of the site, hopefully you'll add links to the author's websites too for those who provide a direct purchase option.
