Free Books

OK, not books, not paper, but the words that make up the books can be got from the internet for free. Best of all - the words are in the right order! Due to the magnanimous efforts of thousands of kind folks scanning, typing and proofreading up these books, they are now available for you to download for FREE! More recently large companies have 'industrialised' this effort bringing millions of documents to the web. They're called e-texts, e-documents or e-books and can be computer searched, archived, and searched much more easily than paper.
