Project Gutenberg is awesome. For language learners, the biggest downside is that Project Gutenberg's collection consists mostly of works that are out of copyright, so the language, style, and cultural assumptions are considerably different from what one finds in modern literature. But there's a wealth of content there for people willing to give the classics a try.

I think copyright lasts too long.

I completely agree, and it is getting extended all the time thanks to the film and music lobby. http://artlawjournal.com/mickey-mouse-keeps-changing-copyright-law/

You're absolutely right, and the 'older' style can be a challenge. Still, I'm currently working my way through the Jules Verne - so good !!!

I just took a brief glance and saw that I can select the language I want, for me I would be wanting Spanish. But, is there any way to select a difficulty level - I need something easy. I did not see that option, but I am good at overlooking things.

As far as I know, there is no way of choosing level of difficulty - the site was never intended as a language learning resource per se. I just preview stuff that looks interesting, and you become familiar with authors and their styles over time. And here's a link for some other tips and tricks: http://ebookfriendly.com/project-gutenberg-tips-tricks/

Since I'm mainly interested in German I'll post German-related sites that I have found other the last few weeks.

There was others but not as good as these 3 (including Project Gutenberg; That was on my list as well)
