O'Reilly Ebook Bundles: EPUB
Ebook bundles available for purchase on oreilly.com include a version of the book in the EPUB standard file format. EPUB was developed by the International Digital Publishing Forum, and is meant to create a single format for reflowable text across all publishers and device makers. One way to think about EPUB is as the "mp3 of Ebooks."
EPUB files can be read on your computer using Adobe's free Digital Editions, which also reads PDF files. In July 2008, Sony added EPUB support to the Sony Reader by way of a firmware update. The Bookworm reader renders EPUB beautifully inside your web browser and has great support for mobile devices.
