You'll have to tinker. Baen titles are made available in HTML, Rocket/Ebookwise, Mobipocket, RTF, and Microsoft Reader formats.

Others have reported good, (very) low effort success with using HTML2LRF on the Baen HTML versions. I haven't tried it yet, but it's on my list of "to dos."

And you can get this book here on MobilRead as I've just formatted it for the Sony Reader and MobiPocket.

It so blows away the poorly formatted copies at Manybooks.

I am reading Time Traders I and it does start off a little slow, but it's picked up and it's good. I recommend it. Bu give it time to get into it.

Excellent Time Travel Novels

I have been reading time travel novels since 1954 and continue to be a huge fan of it. In the last fifty years I have seen titles change from "New Release" to "Classic". Here are just a few:

Time Machine
A Sound of Thunder
Replay
Time and Again

There are some newer novels which in time will eventually be deemed classics as well in the not too distant future.

Lightning
STR8 BOLT
The Time Travelers Wife
Timeline
Timescape

It's just a matter of time.

Michael Moorcock's 'Dancers at the End of Time' series
Stephen Fry 'Making History'

Both very good, but for different reasons.

While not dealing with time travel in the same sense as most of the recommendations so far, Verner Vinge's The Peace War and Marooned in Realtime have interesting time-related storylines.
