I don't know if this is just an unverified rumour, or if there's fact behind it, but the folks at ereader.com have posted that Amazon will soon support the ePub format.  As a new Kindle owner  I'm pretty excited by this. I'm hoping this will make it easier to get even more books on the Amazon store, and it should make it easier for me to buy books from other retailers without having to run it through Calibre first. And obviously this will be great for everyone else as it'll open the market up further for competition (you know what book you want: do you buy it from B&N, Amazon, Kobo, etc?).

I wonder if this is how they were planning to add library support?

I really hope this is true as I think it would simplify the whole industry. We'd have a lot less "what books will my device support" if epub truly becomes the industry standard.

I haven't checked it yet myself, so can't say if the offers are any good... :-)
Amazon.com Now Selling More Kindle Books Than Print Books

Now if they just could figure out the whole lending business, I would be even happier...
