Find full-text classics online at Online Books Page

Online Books PabeIt’s all about text, baby. John Mark Ockerbloom, a digital library planner and researcher at the University of Pennsylvania, created and maintains this definitive, searchable directory to books freely readable over the Web.  Nothing new here, because he only links to full text in the public domain, that is, books published before 1923. On the other hand, you can pull up a copy of any classic you might need. Search by author, title, or Library of Congress subject heading. Find your Chekhov, Mark Twain, and Edith Wharton here!
