    For books that are in the Public domain, look at these sites:

    http://www.gutenberg.org/

    http://www.gutenberg.net.au/

    http://manybooks.net/

    http://www.munseys.com/

    http://www.webliterature.net/

    http://www.feedbooks.com/

    http://www.fullbooks.com/

    http://www.bibliomania.com/

    http://www.classicreader.com/

    If you want books under copyright, I am afraid you are out of luck. Authors want to be paid for their work. (Only in very rare cases does an author offer a copyrighted work on the net for free). There is no legal way to read books under copyright for free. If you find something on the web, it will either be someone's fabrication, or it will be pirated, which could land you in trouble if you use it.

    I'd either buy (try use book stores if buying new is too rich for you) or borrow at a library. Lots of books can be gotten through Inter-library loan. Lots of libraries have e book readers of one type or another and may have your book on it. That is another thing to check out (it would not be on your computer, though).

    If the book you want to read was published in the 1900s or the 2000s, unfortunately it is not on the web because that would be counted as copyright infringement. However if it is a classic like Austen, Bronte, Dickens, etc. it will probably be on the web.

    If you really want to read the book online, there is Google books which offers extremely in depth previews, over a hundred pages. Basically they have different sections of the book and they cut off all the juicy details that make you want to have more. But if you want a head start before actually getting the book, Google books should allow you to do that.

    Hope this helps and good luck!
