Well, yeah.  I'm currently reading an online copy of a perfectly frightful
Victorian novel entitled "The Wide, Wide World" (it's *so* soggy; there's at
least one, if not two or three bouts of tears in every chapter!  And the
rampant, in-your-face Christianity gets on my nerves...).  I would never buy
that in a million years, but it's sort of interesting, which is why I'm
reading it online.  But I do own two or three of Jane Austen's novels, frex.

Until the sky falls on our heads...
