I know it's not new but I ran into this and thought that I'd post it. It's worth a bookmark.

That's a great list, to which I would add four more particularly useful sites:

1. Manybooks.net: 21 thousand books for download in a wide variety of formats for free.

2. More modern books, as well as a number of classics, available at Wowio.com. While they no longer have free downloads (pity... they sock you with a price for them now), their books can all be read online for free.

3. Perhaps the growing granddaddy of them all, Archive.org. A daily -growing library of scanned books in PDF, many of which can be read and keyword searched online, as well as downloaded in (often huge) PDF and plain text format. I have found a number of very rare texts on this site.

4. Google Books is similar, with a number of older texts which can be searched and/or downloaded, and some recent texts which can be partially (often frustratingly partially) read online.

Thanks for sharing the link. I will certainly be checking it out as I love books. Hope to find works which are quite hard to find such as Turgenev's Fathers and Sons.

The keywords in this thread really sucked in the spam bots.
