Some day when you don't have anything to post in the writing forums, or weighing in on someone else's work, or have already played the games, or don't really feel like getting into a heavy discussion in the chat threads, take a look at the comprehensive list of authors whose complete works are available right here-- for free-- on the LitNet.
Just this past Spring I found a Lewis Carroll work I was looking for on this website and spent a most enjoyable afternoon reading-- and "lol'ing"-- a hard-to-find book by a beloved author.
This past Saturday night when I watched Katherine Hepburn's performance in Alice Adams on Turner Classic Movies, I heard the host of the broadcast remark how the book was quite different from the film version.
I took a cursory look around the apt. to see if we owned a copy of the original Booth Tarkington novel-- Nope. But guess what-- it's right here on the LitNet. I'm going to read it here online the end of the week, as soon as I finish my projects.
One thing that struck me about the movie--dating way, way back to 1935, a long time ago even for me!-- is how relevant it is to today's economic and social environment. By that I mean, don't automatically dismiss a book just because it's old or in the public domain. You can always find something enlightening and entertaining if you keep an open mind.
