    It's not that hard, convert pdf or Lit to HTML.
    Remove access breaklines, remove style, chop it in chapters, SSH to the Ebook folder.

    Converting a book takes about 1h depending on the length of the book.

    PDF to html 3.2 with Adobe Acrobat Reader pro 8. Little Html editting needed. Style removed.
    LIT to HTML with ABC Amber LIT Converter. Access <BR> need to be removed. Style removed. Save with file encoding Macroman and Line ending LF.

    If you want some free reading of classics in the public domain (Shakespeare, etc.), you can go do www.ManyBooks.net and get a bunch already formatted for the iPhone & iPod Touch. Now they just need to make an Installer source
