Recent (not classic) ebooks/sites for the jetBook

Since the jetBook doesn't support DRM, we have more limited choices. So I thought I might post some of the ebooks/sites I have found and see what everyone else has found as well.

One of the places I like is Smashwords for new authors. Several I have found on Amazon also have their books available on Smashwords. I really enjoyed the following:
"Soul Identity" and "Soul Intent" by Dennis Batchelder (techno thrillers, reincarnation theme)
Any other book recommendations from Smashwords?

I have also purchased a bunch of inexpensive Steve Jordan books from http://www.stevejordanbooks.com/novels.htm . The ones I have read so far include (science fiction/speculative future):
Evoguia - (speculative future) I thought this one was very good.
Sol - (SciFi space adventure) This one was my favorite so far.
World Farm 1 - (speculative future) I thought this one was ok... didn't grab my interest as much.

I read all 3 of the Delver Magic series (fantasy) by Jeff Inlo and I thought all three were great. They were all free to download in several formats.

Anyone else have some to add?

One place you can go for DRM free eBooks is MobileRead. There are eBooks here that are of a more recent nature other than just classics.

If you like Science Fiction and Fantasy, be sure to check out Baen's Free Library and their e-book sales at Webscription.net. All are DRM-free.

Other free sites include Feedbooks, ManyBooks, and Munsey's.

Fictionwise offers some books in DRM-free versions. Set your selection criteria to "multiformat".
