Project Guttenberg

Project Guttenberg provide free translations for books written before the 1920's. Its a great source for books that would normally cost a lot of money. Please, download the books there and improve your learning so that we can have nice debates in this forum about those books. If you have any questions about any books, please dont hesitate to post in this forum.

I don't know why I didn't post this one sooner: The Complete Corpus of Anglo-Saxon Poetry. It's not for everyone, but I love it! :wink:

I have a question: Is Outlaws of The Marsh in English? If not, where can I get a translation? If so, where can I find it online? (well, for free of course)

Umm... go to www.threekingdoms.com and if you want the book personally then go to amazon or Ebay :wink: oh and I'd recommend introducing yourself in this thread http://the-scholars.com/viewtopic.php?t=423&start=1050 .
