Leaves of Grass on Bartleby
This link will bring you to the full text of Whitman's Leaves of Grass (my personal favorite), but you can access most of the classics here. As they say on the site itself... "...Bartleby.com — after the humble character of its namesake scrivener, or copyist — publishes the classics of literature, nonfiction, and reference free of charge for the home, classroom, and desktop of each and every Internet participant."
A really innovative and fun site - this is where you will find the next book you want to read! You can enter what kind of book you're in the mood for - happy, sad, with a female lead, set in Africa, violent, funny, lots of twists and turns, etc. - and it will return with suggestions.
