Open Library--A Gothic Romance Reader's Dream!

Forgive me if you have heard of this free resource before, but I was ignorant of it until today.

Please go check it out. I am reading a novel by Monica Heath, Falconlough, (I love her work and can find so few of her novels unless I want to pay a lot or horde paperbacks) and have found many other gothic romance writers' novels on this site; I think I am going to be busy for a while! These are in e-book format, but you can also find them in a local library if they have them. I am reading mine on my computer in .pdf in short clips. The loans are two week ones.

What bliss! Let me know how you like Open Library. :)

You've given us the tip of the iceberg. I browsed the Open Library site for a bit and was somewhat overwhelmed by the massive amount of data/books available there. I did a search on gothic romance and narrowed it to ebooks and got a nice list to choose from. Also, I was greatly impressed by the further breakdown of the list in the right-hand column showing the period, location, etc., which was of great interest to me. The 2-week lending period seems restrictive, as I cannot guarantee being able to read a book within 2 weeks, but I assume one can borrow the book more than once to finish it. Thanks so much for this info. I'll be passing it along!
