iPhone App Store selling eBooks for a buck

appstore_dickens.jpg

Or rather, Mr. Tom Peck of AppEngines, LLC, appears to have repackaged several public domain novels into a reader software and is selling them for a dollar apiece. It's a clever little business model and I wish him well; I also hope that someone makes an eBook reader application for the iPhone and iPod Touch that automatically slurps down the same titles from Project Gutenberg.

I still haven't had a chance to play with any of these apps yet, since as for nine o'clock Thursday morning Eastern time, iTunes is still not giving my iPhone the 2.0 firmware.

Update: Gizmodo has a link to the iPhone 2.0 firmware if you want to do a manual install, while Gearlive has a direct link to the MobileMe package.
