Any way to specifically locate Google Books available as ePub?

It's great that Google Books has started offering ePub downloads which are perfect for the 505 ... however, it can be a real pain locating freely downloadable books.

Is there any way that you can specify that a search only returns books for which a downloadable ePub exists?

When using the Sony Reader software to access the Sony Bookstore, just click on the righthand side of the screen where it says "Unearth a Classic...Google Books". It'll bring up all of the Google Books with a "Google Book Search" box at the top of the page.

COOLERBOOKS has a Google Books search that can be used via a standard web browser. It adds the ePub to your shopping basket, but you can get to the the Google download page via "google preview" and then "more about this book".

I agree that the easiest way is to use the sony E-library software and log onto the store.
