The Naked Word
Public Domain eBooks and eText

The Naked Word is dedicated to bringing the public plain text documents. All the documents made available by The Naked Word are in the public domain. That means you can copy the text, re-distribute it, and pretty much use it any way you want, within the confines of the law. Due to the extensive use of tables, and some rather poor HTML, these pages are rather difficult to negotiate with speech, especially if one is using a text-based browser.
