For the sony one, the interface for transfering books to the reader is
simply usb storage and works fine with linux.

To buy books from sony's ebook store requires the use of sony's windows
only software (no linux or mac support).

Lots of free books can be found from other stores of course, and of
course some people use bittorrent and there are always plain text and
pdf files too.
