For a nice Sunday, try Project Gutenberg

For a pleasant Sunday, try browsing in Project Gutenberg. The thing to do is to go to "Bookshelf" and browse the bookshelves by category. I've missed having an on-line Dewey decimal system, since that's how I browsed libraries. This, I think, is a good replacement. (When you download, pictures don't seem to be available in the ascii format. Maybe they're present in html?)

"Browse the bookshelves by category" must be a categorical imperative.

If you're like me and couldn't understand philosophy (I couldn't and Kant), you could try reading the authors in their native tongue. It couldn't be any more confusing.
