iDan thanks for the tip. I did a quick scan for a way to browse free books, but could not find one. Hadn't thought to search for free as a keyword.
I found that the few that I pulled down looked pretty good. Some of the chapter listings weren't configured well. And the Complete Works of Shakespeare does not list the play titles in the Table of Contents which makes finding a work a bit difficult (unless you happen to remember which play has a scene that is set at "Sandal Castle, near Wakefield, in Yorkshire" (Third Part of King Henry the Sixth, if you care ;-) But the project's formatting seems to have translated well, and the iBooks app certainly makes them look polished.
