Check out free e-books

From the Bible and literary classics to historic documents, the University Library's Electronic Text Center is making more than 1,200 of its 50,000 online texts available as free e-books. These texts can be downloaded from the Web and read using free Microsoft Reader software, which runs on a desktop, laptop or Pocket PC hand-held computer. The e-books are available at http://etext.lib.virginia.edu/ebooks/ and titles are added regularly. With over 600,000 downloads since the project was launched in August, the E-text Center is one of the largest and busiest public e-book libraries in the world, library officials said.
