Online Books and Reference Materials

My last post about the Old Fashioned Education had several resources from Project Gutenberg which can be found at www.gutenberg.org. This is a fascinating project that is ongoing to make public domain works available in digital format for people around the world. They even have works in many different languages.

Along the same lines is bartleby.com. Here you can find online books and reference materials. Dictonaries, encyclopedias, thesauri, etc. You will also find Fannie Farmer's cookbook! That was my first discovery on Bartleby.com. Several works of poetry, fiction and non-fiction exist here. You'll find the King James Version of the Bible, works of Shakespeare, Inaugural Addresses of the Presidents of the United States, and Thomas A'Kempis' "The Imitation of Christ" to name a few.

I'm excited to discover all the quality reading material available. Now I just need more time, and a more comfortable chair.
