The Internet Classics Archive

Bringing the wisdom of the classics to the Internet since 1994.


Select from a list of 441 works of classical literature by 59 different authors, including user-driven commentary and "reader's choice" Web sites. Mainly Greco-Roman works (some Chinese and Persian), all in English translation.







The Internet Sacred Text Archive "This is a quiet place in cyberspace devoted to religious tolerance and scholarship" This is one of my favorite sites it contains texts on everything from African religions to Zoroastrianism, with a well rounded fullness in between. Whatever ism your into, you can feed your mind here. 


The Online Books Page  is a site listing 25,000 free online books. The site was created by John Mark Ockerbloom, a digital library planner and researcher at the University of Pennsylvania. The listings can be searched by Author, Title, Subject, using the Library of Congress call number category, which organizes books according to their main topic. 


  The Etext Center at the University of Virginia Library has a large searchable collection of  electronic texts.  Very nice site.


The links above provide access to an enormous amount of reading material that should be able to keep you satisfied for a while. If you want a newer book or one that is still under copyright you may have to crack open that pocket book. When i buy a book i head to amazon.com.

a book is a man's best friend.
Inside of a dog,
it's too dark to read."
