The only issue with that is that the last time I looked, the Plucker
versions created by PG didn't include illustrations on books that had
them. No surprise, given the number of possible options in
resolution (lo-res vs hi-res), color support, and image size. I roll
my own Plucker versions because I want embedded illos in full color.
If you don't care about illustrations, and just want text, other good
sources include Munseys and Manybooks. Both grab legally available
source text from PG and elsewhere, and convvert it to a number of
electronic formats including Plucker.
