Anyone care to post what books they have found on this yet?

I've just been dipping in and found some Chesterton short stories (Not Fr. Brown but more obscure ones) and some of Lord Dunsany's work

So you found the "save a copy" button!
The other way to download is to right click on the link to the book and select "save target as".

Oh, great...now I need more storage capacity, but given that I've just moved my 3500 books to Pittsburgh (with a sore back to show) these are very tempting.
I might be MIA here this weekend.  Cheesy

Thank you for posting this link.  It's delightful.  I have a book of Sappho's verse and a few exerpts in other books, so this is a fine new discovery.  Now I'm going to have to search for more.   Cheesy

Well, e-books aren't as heavy as boxes of 3D ones, so that might give your back a rest.  Wink
