I have just discovered this website. What a great resource! There are dozens of ebooks available *free* for download. The site has a focus on women authors, with many well-known and not-so-well-known classics available.
Included are such authors as: The Bronte sisters, Georgette Heyer, Louisa May Alcott, L.M. Montgomery, Elizabeth Gaskell, Fanny Burney, Mary Grant Bruce, Frances Hodgson Burnett, Johanna Spyri, and of course Jane Austen, as well as many, many other famous women writers.
There is also a blog, with various book reviews to browse through.
