Mary Crosson's "Plain Jane" Series Listings Main Page


Children's series books available online

EP from Lillian Roy's "Little Washingtons" series

Reading an e-text is a poor substitute for the sensory pleasure of actually handling and reading an old book, but it's a good way to check out unfamiliar series and authors before you invest a lot of time in hunting down "real" copies. 

I've attempted to list currently available free e-text versions of series books (and some other books of interest to series fans, such as the novels of Alger, Henty, and Stratemeyer.) New additions to the list are marked with an (N). If you know of one that I have not listed, please let me know so that I can keep the list as up-to-date as possible. Similarly, if you find that a link does not work, please email me so that I can correct the problem. Thanks! (Mary Crosson)
