These are all so great. Thank you all very much for posting these links to books. I got an ereader recently and I have been adding files to it. Some of the larger collections are really appreciated (Collected Writings of Ajahn Chah for instance as well as the Sutta Pitaka).

Huge collection of Thanisarro Bhikkhu's writings and essays in epub format:

The heart of the path is SO simple. No need for long explanations. Give up clinging to love and hate, just rest with things as they are. That is all I do in my own practice. Do not try to become anything. Do not make yourself into anything. Do not be a meditator. Do not become enlightened. When you sit, let it be. When you walk, let it be. Grasp at nothing. Resist nothing. Of course, there are dozens of meditation techniques to develop samadhi and many kinds of vipassana. But it all comes back to this - just let it all be. Step over here where it is cool, out of the battle. - Ajahn Chah

There is also this other thread that I don't think has been mentioned here...

viewtopic.php?f=14&t=8243&start=0

There is also this page, mentioned quite a bit in the other thread. It is just sutta books:

If you have an iPhone or iPad, there is a free Access to Insight app (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/access-t ... 25338?mt=8), which is essentially the entire website wrapped in an application. So with this, you can have all the texts, with the links from the site, in your pocket. It's not the latest version of the site - the current version is 2010.08.23, not the 2009 date shown in the screenshots on the iTunes Store - but I'm sure that's good enough for most people.

You can add bookmarks to specific pages, but you can't search. You also can't change the font size, which isn't an issue on the iPad, where it's bigger, but for me, on an iPhone, the font is a bit small.

But it's free, and it's pretty much the entire site.
