Did you know that George Eliot's Middlemarch is posted online in its entirety? As is Madam Bovary, Anna Karenina, and Don Quixote. contains 769 books and 1041 short stories by 211 authors. (via Bookfilter.)

Let's not forget Project Gutenberg. I believe they have around 6000 classic works?

The good thing about this site is that you can annotate the works, and then print the text and annotations together.

It could be handy for academic work.

They have a good search function as well, which is sadly lacking at PG. Thanks for the link, Pinwheel.

Forget Madame Bovary, they've got Tom Swift!

Why bother with all that old crap? I want stuff that is brand new.

Well then - here's the ultimate theory for you, Postroad. ;)

Thanks for the valuable tip, Pinwheel - the annotations are definitely a bonus.

Another great online books source is at UPenn. (19,000 listings)

Gutenberg Australia has a bunch of stuff that's probably illegal to distribute in the U.S.

Does anyone else have trouble connecting to bookfilter? I have tried several times, over a period of weeks, but i can't get the page to load...
