Arts, Literature, Pop Culture, Media Gems

On the Waterfront, The Maltese Falcon, Double Indemnity, and The Goldrush, define Hollywood's Golden era. From the 1920's through the 1950's, movie moguls reigned supreme and ruled the industry with an iron fist. These entrepreneurs created an industry and an art form that would remain as timeless as the films they produced. The Palace is a site devoted to Hollywood's Golden era and the great classic films it produced. In operation since 1995, it is one of the most respected and visited sites of its kind. Browse through hundreds of images, numerous audio clips and comprehensive bibliographies, and you'll be transported back to some of tinsel town's greatest moments.

There's still something about the feel of a good book that a laptop can't simulate, but the
Microsoft Reader comes close. Download this rather hefty file (7 mb), then go to the University of Virginia's Electronic Text Center. There you'll find at least 1,200 free ebooks available covering a wide range of subjects. The site typically "ships" about a third of a million ebooks each month. Look further at the eBook Directory, claiming some 12,000 books free for the download. If you can't find your reading material there, buy an ebook at Barnes & Noble.
