    Default Authentic English texts

    I have only one simple question:
    Where on the Internet can I find authentic texts in English such as quotes from books, whole adapted book sections, essays, rubrics from newspapers, etc.?
    Thank you in advantage for any helpful advice.

    If you could be more specific about what you are looking for I could provide a more definitive answer. You might try bartleby.com for texts of literary works.

    Thanks, that was very useful. What about daily or weekly newspapers which can be read online, or something containing articles and daily or weekly rubrics?

    Most major newspapers and journals have websites. Google them with the title of the periodical and "online" >> "Spectator online". Many give full text of their major articles or reports.

    Bartleby and Gutenberg are ostensibly "out of copyright" services - but there are grey areas and you may have to pay for full text.
