You can use Calibre to download and organise free books (Gutenberg web site and others).

Lots of Linux people have had problems downloading books with DRM which use Adobe Digital Editions and I gave up on that - bought a W7 notebook to use my local library to borrow ebooks.

Have a look at the forums on MobileRead - they have some Ubuntu users and they also have loads of DRM free books to download.

Enjoy!
