Google is expanding Google Book Search to include the free downloading of complete books. These are older "classics" (Hamlet, Aesop's Fables, Dante's Inferno, and the like) that are presumably in the public domain -- that is, books whose copyrights have expired. The books are downloadable in PDF format, for reading on any PC. Just search for the book you want and then click the Full View option.
