No, I haven't; thanks for the reference. I have tried
http://www.memoware.com/, and downloaded some books from there, e.g. a bit
of Chesterton and lots of Conan Doyle. The great difficulty with these free
texts, though, is that they are often poorly formatted and full of scanning
errors. Only rarely have I found free online texts of reliable quality
(e.g. the Shakespeare texts to be found at http://the-tech.mit.edu/). I'm
willing to pay for quality in some cases; I bought my PalmOS Bible, for
example, rather than relying upon one of the numerous freely downloadable
texts of doubtful integrity.
