The Library that Never Ends

Have you heard of www.archive.org before? If you like books you will love it! 

It is a fully searchable library over millions of public domain books (published before 1923) and also lets you borrow books still in copyright. They also have old radio shows and feature films that are out of copyright.

It is easier to read the books on an ipad.

Here are some items that caught my eye (a star beside an item means it is available to borrow but is still in copyright):
