Merry Christmas, ya'll, and Happy New Year!

Here is a link to a treasure trove of "classical" book titles, many of which appear to be PD. A starting point, anything that strikes your fancy might be worth looking into.

The one I randomly looked at is a scan, and is also on Archive. If it can be found on Archive, that's probably the better bet, since it looks like you have to register to get full access on Forgotten Books. :hmm:
Mystery/PulpFic: Dope, by Sax Rohmer
The one that started them all: Self-Help, by Samuel Smiles
Elizabethan Poetry: The Psalmes of David

Oh, I was only suggesting a handy list of titles to look into, not actually using the Forgotten Books platform for text.
