Free Books

As of today, Google Book Search affords you the opportunity to read or even download the complete text of many out-of-copyright books, including Hamlet, Aesop’s Fables, the Inferno, and many more. Here’s the news on Google’s own blog. If you’re looking for a current book, and you also don’t want to pay a penny, you might consider Book Mooch. And if you’re wondering where to start with a new author, living or dead, you might check into Debbie’s Idea. I’m sure a lot of you who read this blog have other good information about online literature, so feel free to share in the comments. (For the discussion of related issues on this blog, see here.)
