You know how when you first got your e-reader you were excited about all the great public domain books you were going to read, only to find that your e-reader's book-finding process helped you to the titles of the first 100 or so most popular freebies and then sorta stopped? Me, too.
Aunt Lee's Library -- the free e-book -- is a good start to solving that dilemma. Here is curated content for you: reviews of 77 public domain e-books, including science fiction, humor, satire, romance, pulp, gothic, nonfiction, and classics. I selected them by obsessively cross-checking "greatest books ever" lists with lists of books in the public domain. Then I sought out book reviews from online reviewers, obtained re-print permission, and Aunt Lee's Library is the result.
Download the free e-book and start reading the reviews. When you've chosen an e-book, click on the search link, which takes you to a meta-search engine that searches only the best of the free e-book sites. Just start typing in the book title -- auto-suggest has been pre-coded to do the work for you.
If you're new to the whole idea of e-books, just look to the right on the search engine page -- I've written up tutorials to help you with the process, and you can feel free to email me with questions. Let's combine traditional literacy with digital literacy and start realizing the genuine potential of the e-reader.
