The short answer is no. Google's ebooks will not work with your stream unless 
they are public domain. Those books which are downloadable in either PDF or 
epub are marked with the Adobe Digital Edition DRM.  I'll have a blog post 
about this soon.

Has anyone bought eBooks from http://books.google.com/ebooks 

 

What I need to know is what format they come in. Will the format be something I 
can use my stream to read?
