I have just bought a Sony Reader PRS-505, and prior to purchasing was trying to find out which free books were bundled with it, but didn't have much luck.

Of course, it was obvious that all the free books would be available from Project Gutenberg anyway, but I didn't want to waste time downloading titles that would come with it.

Like I say, I couldn't find this information, but now that I have my Reader I thought I'd publish the list of eBooks here in the hope that it helps someone:
