With two small Godzillas rampaging around the house, I've been forced to put 95% of my print collection in storage for its own protection. Free ebooks have been a great blessing to me, and I thought I'd share a number of the best sites I've found for others to enjoy. Many of the books can be downloaded, and I've provided a few links for freeware ebook readers as well.


The Alchemy Web Site Alchemical texts (obviously).

Baen Free Library Fantasy and science fiction from some well-known names in the field.

Blackmask Online My favorite. Something for everyone, from history to mythology to early pulp fiction and everything in-between, and updated constantly besides!

The Camelot Project All Arthurian, all the time!

Classics in the History of Psychology

Cogprints Psychology, Neuroscience, Linguistics, Philosophy, Computer Science, etc.

Documenting the American South Southern history and literature. Another mixed bag of goodies.

Internet Archive All kinds of stuff here, from books to music to film.

Free Books 4 Doctors Medical books.

Gaslight Mysteries, adventure and "the Wierd".

The Hermetic Library

Internet History Sourcebooks Project A superior collection.

Internet Sacred Text Archive A must!

Library of Congress

Luminarium Medieval, Renaissance, & 17th Century literature. A very pretty site.

Magical Texts Crowley, Crowley and more Crowley. Oh yeah, they have some other stuff there too.

Online Medieval & Classical Library What can I say, I'm an amateur medievalist.

Perseus Digital Library Specializes in Greek and Latin works.

Project Gutenberg Prepare to spend LOTS of time here!

The Salem Witchcraft Papers Trial transcripts.

Twilit Grotto's Archives of Western Esoterica

University of Michigan Digital Library Some unique collections, including "Making of America".

University of Virginia Ebook Library A very nice selection.

Wiley Interscience Full-text journals, etc.

I'm sure I'll come up with new sites as I explore other areas, so if anyone wants me to update later, I'll be glad to do so. Also, please feel free to contribute your own links! I'm always glad to find new treasures.

As promised, ebook reader programs. The good news is, they're all free!

Adobe Reader For PDF files.

Microsoft Reader For lit files.

Mobipocket For prc files.

uBook Skinnable, for .pdb, .prc, .txt, .rtf and .html. I was surprised when it read an html ebook contained in a zip file! A very nice program.

eReader for pdb files.

So what are you waiting for? Get reading!
