I found a lot of excellent classics from Project Gutenberg. It is a volunteer effort to digitize and archive cultural works, to "encourage the creation and distribution of eBooks. Most of the items in its collection are the full texts of public domain books. As of December 2009, Project Gutenberg claimed over 30,000 items in its collection.
