When looking up texts to use in lessons, try ReadPrint for “*FREE” books online. For example, when setting up a lesson on The Wind in The Willows by Kenneth Grahame, it is great to be able to go to the section of text you need.
It is quite remarkable how many useful texts can be found in Project Guttenburg. Project Gutenberg, is a volunteer effort to digitize, archive and distribute cultural works. Most of the items in its collection are the full texts of public domain books. The project tries to make these as *free as possible, in long-lasting, open formats that can be used on almost any computer.
(*It is really important to discuss “free”. Project Guttenburg have an interesting & useful way of defining “FREE” here)
