17.Google books

Choose the function: "more"/"books". Give in a keyword. If you choose "full view" at the left side of the page, you can read whole books online.

In many cases (especially if you are looking for historical sources) there´s also the option to make a pdf copy. If this option is available, you will see the button "Download PDF" in the headline at the top of the right, when you "opened" the book.
