Project Gutenberg Is a Must for e-Bibliophiles

Do you need a classical text but do not have the time or the money to purchase it or a friend from whom to borrow it? Try Project Gutenberg, self-described as "the oldest producer of free electronic books on the Internet" with more than 13,000 volumes, most of which are older literary works in the public domain in the United States and, therefore, free of certain copyright restrictions. You may freely download for non-commercial use such masterpieces such Homer's The Iliad and The Odyssey, Plato's The Republic, Aristotle's Poetics, Niccolò Machiavelli's The Prince, Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations, Charles Dickens's Great Expectations, Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility, Fyodor Dostoyevsky's Crime and Punishment, Herman Melville's Moby Dick, Anton Chekhov's The Seagull, Franz Kafka's Metamorphosis, James Joyce's Ulysses, Eugene O'Neill's Anna Christie, and Bram Stoker's Dracula. Here's the link: Happy reading!
