Comment on Tofu

The best little app that nobody ever heard of. Tofu makes reading long stretches of text downright pleasant, and the latest version supports PDFs as well. (PDFs are portable, yeah, but you end up spending more time scrolling around than reading!) It totally eliminates the top-half-of-a-line-at-the-bottom-of-the-window problem that plagues web browsers--Tofu displays complete lines only! This sounds minor, but is a huge boost to readability. You can also display the text in your choice of fonts. I prefer Palatino, which is very readable on-screen.

(Re mumkin's Project Gutenberg comment below, google for "GutenMark" which is a command-line utility that automatically formats Gutenberg texts into readable HTML or LaTeX.)
