Ok everyone, I have added a couple of links, over on the right there, to LibraVox and Project Gutenberg. Each on offers free editions of books in the public domain. LibraVox specializes in the audio formats, and Project Gutenberg has mostly text ebooks, along with some audio ebooks as well.
Have fun finding some of your favorites!

On July 29th 1914, the world’s peace was shattered as the artillery of the Austria-Hungary Empire began shelling the troops of the country to its south.
