And so said Eddie Izzard - Ok now I have you attention, you might be pleased to know Google have launched there own ebook search site - books.google.com. All the texts fall into the realm of "Public Domain" and they come in PDF format. If you come across any gems among the titles on offer, please be sure to let us know!

Not sure what the problem is: I can't find any implementation notes for xpdf that says if it doesn't support progressive JPEG 2000 encoding of images.
Or are there any Google PDF books that do work on mobile readers?

So, right now, the answer to your question is "probably not." Your best bet for public domain content is still the old stand-bys: Gutenberg, Manybooks, etc.

Oh forgot to add Izzard quotes...
"I'm covered in bees!"
"I'm not Head of Catering! I am Vader!"
"No flag no country you can't have one!"
