That's cool!

They have other languages, too. Just spotteted L'agence Barnett et Cie (Arsène Lupin #15) by Leblanc, Maurice (1927).

I wanted to put this site down for possible inclusion. It's Colonial Australian Popular Fiction: A Digital Archive, and it's hosted by the University of Melbourne:
http://www.apfa.esrc.unimelb.edu.au/home.html
These are scans, or least the ones that I've looked at are. There is some overlap with PGA, but it looks like there are lots more books that haven't been transcribed elsewhere.

I don't see any copyright claims, but it's probably best to double check before recording.

There is also the University of Adelaide's ebooks website:
https://ebooks.adelaide.edu.au/

It's all terribly exciting, and it's more than any one reader can get to, unfortunately!
