The Everything Library

This metanode project is devoted to gathering all of the full texts of published books on Everything for your browsing pleasure. Every single work listed here is available in full on Everything. This has been attempted before by nodes like Everything Literature and Full Texts Works in Everything, but those sites are apparently no longer updated.

The list is organized first by genre, then by the author's last name, then alphabetically. I also hope to eventually have the date of original publication.

Props to the Gutenburg Project, as well as all the literature noders. Also thanks to the following nodes for making my quest easier: BOOKS, AUTHORS, Full text works in Everything and Everything Literature. I challenge you to find a book not on this list. If you do, please /msg me! Also contact me if there are mispellings in the titles, of which I'm certain there are a few.

Editor's note 9/02: The noder who posted this has not appeared for four months, so if you have an addition or correction for this list, please /msg a content editor.
