There are some good books being published …

images… and never forget that the old books (the classics) have withstood the test of time and despite their inclusion in the ranks of public domain, publishers are still printing new editions regularly.

Also, it’s no secret that many of the classics are available for free on the internet. Most online booksellers actually have free or ridiculously cheap editions available of all those great novels like Little Women or Pride and Prejudice but I recommend spending some time over at Project Gutenberg where they have just about any public domain text you want available in many different formats including those for digital readers.
