Sony, together with Google, on Wednesday announced it is providing access to more than 1 million free public domain books in its eBook Store, including classic novels, biographies, historical texts, romance novels and more.

The titles, which Google has digitized as part of its Google Books project, are available in EPUB format and naturally work with the $280 Sony PRS-505 or the $350 PRS-700 Reader.

The PRS-500 does not work with the Google offering.

The process involves downloading software, signing up for an account and loading the e-books on your compatible device. For now, it's available only to U.S.-based readers (probably due to licensing agreements and copyright issues across borders).
