I have been thinking on the lines of "itunes for e-books". You might want to
have a look at the attached functional specification document.

I initially planned to use a closed format - LRF, which is used in Sony
readers. I have mentioned about this in the document. Sony readers are very
commonly used in India, and a number of South-Asian countries. That said, I
am also open to using Mobipocket and OEB, the open source counterpars to
LRF. Need to investigate their performance.

Will be posting this idea at GSoC this year. Would be great if someone could
work with us on this project.
