I am going on a 2.5 week overseas trip in about a month's time, and the most important part of any vacation is, of course, making sure you have packed enough books. Which means it's time to restock my e-reader. I don't buy many ebooks (because if I'm going to spend money I usually prefer to have a tangible copy to hang on to) so it is TO PROJECT GUTENBERG to replenish my ebook supply.
So I am looking for recommendations of books in the public domain that I would enjoy reading. There's a vast world of totally-enjoyable-yet-forgotten books out there and I don't know how best to trawl its depths so please let me know of any favourites of yours! (or, y'know, books that aren't your favourites but you think would be up my alley anyway.)
Or tbh I would also be in the market for recommendations of interesting historical romance ebooks for purchase at affordable prices, with the important caveat that there be zero rape (or threat of rape, or general rapey feel), and there needs to be a sense that the main characters actually like each other as people instead of just being hot for each other's bodies. Some actual groundedness in the historical setting would be nice too. I love a great deal of Courtney Milan's oeuvre, for a sense of the kind of thing I'm looking for here.
