    Random samples: browsing for something new to read

      If you're looking for a new e-book to read, but don't have anything specific in mind, try out No Names, No Jackets. This site offers a selected chapter from various e-books, without any author or title information. First you're presented with the first dozen lines of a bunch of choices, and you can select one to keep reading the chapter. If you like the chapter, there's a link at the bottom of the page that'll take you to a page that says who the author is, what the title is, and has links to places, including B&N, where you can get it.

       

      You also can pop over to their archives to see the first half-dozen lines — but without formatting and without any indication of genre — for each title submitted in a month.
