Magazines Formatted for eBook Readers?

Hi, I just received a Sony PRS-505 for Christmas and I am curious if there are any eBook formatted magazines out there? I would love to grab a copy of, say Business Week, PC World, or any other magazine and be able to archive it and read it on my reader.

If this isn't the correct place to post this then please move.

Thanks!

If you like SF or mystery magazines, Fictionwise have a good selection available in Sony format. You can buy either individual issues or yearly subscriptions. "Fantasy and Science Fiction", "Ellory Queen's Mystery Magazine", etc.

There is a great open source program, libprs500. Here's the link: https://libprs500.kovidgoyal.net/

Among the features, this offers free content download, sony format, content from New York Times, Newsweek and The Economist, among others. The content is formatted perfectly for the 500 or 505. You will notice slower formatting and loading if you have a 505 but it works great.
