Sources of books

Guys, do you know where to get more books for the PRS (505 in my case)? I am looking for some other store that sell in format compatible with PRS. It seems that Sony Book Store has quiet limited assortment and there are some books that I cannot find in there, yet they are available for Kindle.

Thanks.
Alex.

It won't work. First I live in Israel where, presumably, I am one of out something like ten Sony PRS-505 owners. Unfortunately, there's no such library in Israel. Also, if its in the library, it must be somewhere for sale, isn't it?

Microsoft's .LIT format can be readily and very cleanly converted to the sony format.

At tor.com, you can find lots of free downloads of quirky stories
Also bookviewcafe.com

The formats you want are ePub or LRF. Those do not have to be converted, just load them up on your 505.

Avoid PDF it possible.

Manybooks has a good indexing system and a good library but I don't like the way they're formatted... the margins are too wide. Project Gutenberg has nice epubs.
