In the listings, you can start reading a book by clicking on or selecting its title (or on the phrase that describes where it is, if you're looking at a detailed book description, or at a listing that has multiple links).
You can also select the icon at the start of a book listing to find out more about a particular book, find other books with the same author, title, or subject, or find out how to make a stable link to the detailed book description. (A book on the extended shelves has a icon instead. You can select that icon to see more information about the book, and request a stable link in the curated collection.)
See our archives and indexes listings for specialized sites that list texts that don't (or don't yet) appear individually in our indexes. That's also the place to go to find books in languages other than English (if they're not on our extended shelves).
For online books that aren't free, try this index of electronic publishers from the Open Directory.
