Really Cool On-line Library

Someone just alerted me to a stunning website called By the Fireplace - An Online Library. It's got 1710 books and 1193 short stories by 287 authors. All in the public domain. There are some outstanding classics such as:

The Last of the Mohicans by James Fenimore Cooper
The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
Animal Farm by George Orwell
And dozens of hilarious Wooster and Jeeves books by P.G. Wodehouse

Dozens of science fiction novels by H.G. Wells, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Jules Verne, and Jack London.

Short stories by O Henry, H.G. Wells, Jack London, Mark Twain, Edgar Allen Poe (including my favorites, The Cask of Amontillado and The Tell-Tale Heart) and many others.

Plays by Ibsen, Moliere, Chekhov (including my favorite Uncle Vanya), 4 Greek comedies by Aristophenes, and almost 40 masterpieces by the bard himself, Wm. Shakespeare.

The incredible poetry section includes: Beowulf, The Divine Comedy by Dante, Homer's Odyssey and selections from Emily Dickenson

Non-fiction from Martin Luther, St. Augustine, and G.K. Chesterton

Oh great! Just what I needed. Another reason to sit for hours in front of the computer.

Wow! What a discovery! I only wish that the volumes were available in a format more suited to printing.
