Anyone know  a good place to find books to read online?  Especially classics!

Thanks,

Lisa

project gutenberg (spelling?) is the most comprehensive site that I know of.  There are lots of others, though.

If you prefer reading a little bit of a classic a day via e-mail, there's DailyLit - http://www.dailylit.com

Thanks!  I'll try both of those.  I tried the Gutenberg Project, but I didn't want to download a big thing to do it.  Our computer is having problems so I didn't want to stress it's little brain any more than necessary!

Thanks again!

This one came out around Halloween one year:

It has some classics like Dracula and Frankenstein
