READ OLD, NEW BOOKS ONLINE --
You can read a chapter from the latest bestsellers or the whole text of out-of-print books online at several sites.
At BookBrowse.com you can read excerpts from new and recent fiction and nonfiction books and then order those you like. The site claims to compare prices from 25 bookstores to give visitors the lowest price.
For a much different selection, try the Online Books Page, http://onlinebooks.library.upenn.edu/
You can search for the full text of more than 8,000 books by author, title and subject. The collection ranges from contemporary scholarly works to obscure political tracts to out-of-print classics.
An example: Under the H list of authors, you find Nathaniel Hawthorne's complete works. Nearby is a book by I. I. Hayes, whose 436-page "An Arctic Boat Journey, in the summer of 1854" came out in 1874. Or try C for "Caesar's Commentaries on the Gallic and Civil Wars: with the Supplementary Books attributed to Hirtius".
This University of Pennsylvania site also has four other sections: news, features, archives and inside story. It is an extensive resource. http://www.bookbrowse.com/

"Superb, intuitive navigation in a clean, appealing, easy-reading layout offers easily digested copy 'chunks' packed with illustrations, charts, graphs and photos -- and plenty of links and opportunities to give feedback. Very effective, and very hard to ignore -- which is the whole point."
