Reading books online

I just went looking for books to read online, and I quickly found I wasn't looking for Jane Austen, Emily Bronte, Agatha Christie, H.G. Wells, Leo Tolstoy and Mark Twain, but they were great, and they're all there. They have a bunch of poems and quotes as well.

I found Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes books here. I'm a big fan.

I also found The Wind in the Willows, the 1908 children's novel by Kenneth Grahame. It's on

I'm just starting Lost Horizon on; the James Hilton book is just as I remember it, of course.

I checked out Robert A. Heinlein's Stranger in a Strange Land, and, yes, it's available online.

Here's a link to a bunch of Agatha Christie novels.

Finally, I've just started an Agatha Christie book, The Secret Adversary, on It's Christie's first Tommy and Tuppence book.

Beware, though; some "free" sites still ask you for a credit card to get started.

Enough for now. More later. I think I'll read a bit more Lost Horizon.
