    If you have a Jailbroken iTouch/iPhone you can SSH into the Kindle (from Amazon available through AppStore for free) program's ebook directory and copy these free books into it for reading. I copied The Time Machine by HG Wells in MOBI format and it worked fine. I suspect any DRM free Kindle or Mobi format books will work. Maybe some more that the Kindle 2 can support (TXT files don't work as far as I know).

    I found a good selection of Project Gutenberg books converted into MOBI and Kindle format here: http://freekindlebooks.org/

    EDIT: I'm going to try and use Kindle's free converting service ona PDF document and see if those uploaded files work as well.
