"Despite the fact that the App Store is capturing everybody's attention, old-school (as in, about 8 months ago) mobile web apps are still worth checking out, too -- Andy Ihnatko reports that Google has put their Google Book Search web app in iPhone form, and the result is awesome: 1.5 million public-domain texts in a well-coded and clean reader all for completely free."
If I was in a bind and wanted to read something from the public domain, this would be just the ticket. No subscription or app required and it works pretty well. It doesn't compete with my Kindle, but if all I had was my iPhone or iPod Touch and wanted to get in a quick read, I'd head on over to http://books.google.com/m and do some browsing.
