    I forgot to tell you some of the links like the really huge ones that are numbered you have to copy and paster them into the Address box of your web browser. Sorry if this is really a long list. Also to find some of the material you might have to browse around some of the sites just for a little while though.

    I checked all of the links before I posted them and they all seem to work ...

    Thank-you for reminding of the webpage where they came from.. I forgot the url . I had them printed in a binder.

    I dont know if anyone knew about this but, if you type in any search engine [ex. excerpt from "name of book" ...] some book sellers will have free chapters that you can download for free ..

    I agree with GreekGoddess about your links, they either work or they don't. It is important to remember that URL's cannot contain spaces, they are case and punctuation sensitive, and usually lower case. Be carefull when copy and pasting that you get the complete URL, as it is very easy to miss one character out , especially if it is long
