The Internet is fast becoming an online library.  Several sources including the Gutenberg Project, Bartleby, the University of Kansas and BookRags offer books and other publications, including poetry, diaries and journals.  In some cases the works may not be complete, but contain only excerpts.  In order to find the books categorized below you can search by the title of the work.  However, you can visit each of the Internet sites previously named.  Each of these sites is constantly adding books to their holdings.  Year of publication is provided when known as well as other pertinent information pertaining to the book, including awards and/or if it was translated into English from other language.

If a book you are looking for isn’t listed, it may mean that it is not yet in the public domain.  Books are copyright free in the European Union 70 years after the death of the author or if published before 1923 in the United States.
