Mobileread Forums Deals: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/forumd ... rune=&f=26 (note that a lot of deals here are location-specific). Also check the downloads section for free books, but it's not very well laid out.

I didn't mention the 'regular' Project Gutenberg as it's very much a given, but not many people are aware of the Australian site. Things have been a bit quiet on the book front recently (unless you live in the States). Hopefully, this will change with the run-up to Black Friday.
