The books linked to below are mentioned in articles published on this website. These "modern", but now quite old texts are in the public domain, and are hosted by websites such as Project Gutenberg, a vast depository of public-domain (in the U.S.) and often out of prints works of literature.
Of course, a more or less well-produced e-book will never replace the pleasure of the printed word and the convenience of a physical book. Many of these works are still published and easily obtainable.
