I love rediscovering a site I knew about a while ago, and then forgot about.  I snagged a whole bunch of books today by some of my favorite authors at

http://www.manybooks.net/

I picked books by G.K. Chesterton, Dorothy Sayers, P.G. Wodehouse, and John Buchan.  (Check out those authors if you like British mysteries and short stories from the early 1900s.)  I also snagged a John Scalzi sci-fi story just to see if I like it.  (John Buchan wrote the original The 39 Steps story--which is very different from the Hitchcock version.  I just found out he wrote sequels to it!  And they have the sequels at manybooks.net!) :)

Any other favorite authors you enjoy at manybooks.net?  I like how easy it is to search by author at this site.  I'll be looking here again. :)

Manybooks is my favorite free book site.  You can find rarities by and about Louisa May Alcott and her family (gotta love those Transcendentalists :)

rarities by Mark Twain, history as told by those who lived it, travel by intrepid females of the 19th century, and so much more!  Have you set up a bookshelf there yet?

Actually, I didn't realize I could set up a bookshelf there.  I will definitely have to do that.  I've found some books on this site that I'm not likely to find in my usual used-book-store searches--let alone for free. 

Thanks for the tip!
