The only place I know of that does that is O'Rielly with their Safari bookshelf. But, you can only read the books online in a browser and they only have Technical books. It is very useful too. Books247.com is similar... once again, all non-fiction type books and only onllne.
You best best is a library as others have stated. Fictionwise.com has one sort of like what you are asking for club members... but I think it has a pretty limited selection at this time.
