You know how when you first got your e-reader you were excited about all the great public domain books you were going to read, only to find that your e-reader's book-finding process helped you to the titles of the first 100 or so most popular freebies and then sorta stopped? Me, too.
Aunt Lee's Library -- the free e-book -- is a good start to solving that dilemma. It's a free e-book about free e-books: reviews by 60 writers from all over the world of 77 public domain e-books, including science fiction, humor, satire, romance, pulp, gothic, nonfiction, and classics.
I selected the books by obsessively cross-checking "greatest books ever" lists [for example, Gutenberg Best Books Ever Bookshelf
, The Guardian's 1000 Novels Everyone Should Read
, The Greatest Books
] with lists of books available as free, public domain e-books. Then I sought out book reviews from online reviewers, obtained re-print permission, and Aunt Lee's Library is the result.

It's a great e-book to just have on your e-reader for those times when you want to read something new and can't decide what you're in the mood for.
