We just found this site called which absolutely rules. It provides you with access to hundreds, literally hundreds of canonical Great Books. You can no longer say, if you've never read Aristophanes, that you always wanted to but never managed to get hold of a copy, because here it is. Along with everything else we've never read but sure have run across the title or author of a lot. "Oh, yeah, Pico della Mirandola. Italian Renaissance. Uh, what else.....?" Real readers will love this site. (No, we're not some kind of super-intellects who normally spend hours of our spare time reading Greek theater, though perhaps we should. We came across it by accident while searching for info about H.L. Mencken.)
