About this site:

This site is a collection of English-language literature, with an emphasis on American and British authors. Its goal is to provide ad-free, public domain literature to readers throughout the world. Novels, short stories, essays, poetry, drama, and children's books are included. There are plenty of classics here as well as work by obscure authors.

Since these books are in the public domain, feel free to download them, print them or re-distribute them. Most of the texts were produced by volunteers working for organizations such as Distributed Proofreaders that scan, proofread, and format books.
