Thanks Ebor.
I've noted this in my datebook!

Thanks for posting this. Looks very interesting.

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

Downloaded a few so far, but currently reading:
"Lines of Love Wine and Song: The Muses at Work"
- a collection of Ancient Greek poetry translated into English by George Theodoridis.

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.  :D

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.   :D

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