I ran across this site (it was mentioned in a thread on LibraryThing) as a source of nicely-formatted, out of copyright 18th through early 20th century books by women, either free or 99 cents. There's a lot of Elizabeth von Arnim as well as everything from Louisa May Alcott to Baroness Orczy to Fanny Burney. Definitely worth a look.

Thanks, Marissa! Just a note that if a book you want is 99c, you can check Gutenberg.org to see if they have it for free.

Peggy (dandelion_cottage) | 259 comments It's one of my absolute favorites. It's free on both Girlebooks and Amazon.

Jackie | 334 comments wonderful, now I have it for when I'm between all the group and buddy reads! FYI I see Freckles by the same author is also free.
