[It] is committed to bringing you a wide selection of the best public domain books available, all in an easy to read format. Most sites with online books have the whole book on one page, forcing you to wait while the whole thing downloads. Even worse, if you don't read the whole book in one sitting, how do you keep track of where you are? Do you really want to have to look through thousands of lines to find where you left off? Some sites are better in that they put one chapter per page. Even this is hard. What if you get interrupted in the middle of the chapter? How do you bookmark it? To fill this void, PageByPageBooks.com was created. Read a little or alot, sneak in a few pages over lunch then read some more after dinner, no matter how much you read at a time, you can bookmark it and come back to exactly the right place.
