Searching through Project Gutenberg
Right now, I am reading The Count of Monte Cristo, and I got The Brothers Karamazov, War of the Worlds, Jane Erye, On the Origin of Species, The Jungle, Crime and Punishment, and Alice in Wonderland on my backlog for reading.
Origin of Species I wouldn't call it light reading, I'm reading it just to get a better understanding of what Darwin wrote about to contrast it with the modern stuff that Richard Dawkins wrote in his book The Selfish Gene.
I'm keeping my reading list strictly within what I can download from Project Gutenberg, so if there are any recommendations please let me in. I want to read at least one novel involving the character Alan Quatermain(I only know of him from being used in The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen), one Tarzan novel, and a good horror story(I already read Dracula).

I believe the entire H. Rider Haggards works have been uploaded by Harry T.

All of the books mentioned are available for download here, in versions much, much nicer than the "raw" PG originals.

And, the first Allan Quartermain novel, King Solomon's Mines is this month's discussion book. See the thread at http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=49378
