Any (e)book recommendations?

Dear lazyweb,

Lately I’ve taken to reading ebooks on my phone and I’m running out of good material. I’m not picky with any book genres and couldn’t care less if I was recommended a book about gardening as long as it’s a good read. Here I am asking for any good (e)books, classic or hidden-in-a-dusty-corner-of-the-internet, I don’t mind. If you can provide a download link too (preferrably free and in plaintext format, but I don’t mind PDF/doc/odt) that would really be awesome, but otherwise book titles are also appreciated.

If you know any good ebook resources where I can easily get free ebooks in sane formats (see above), or even a trusted and cheap paid site, I’d also be happy to know of these.

… or you could just ignore me.

I try to do the right thing when I get the chance in my field, such as through contributing to open-source communities and promoting sustainable living.
