Public domain book club books?

A couple people in my book club have e-readers and I would like to compile a list of books that we could read that are available for free - i.e. public domain.
We read Frankensteain a couple of months ago and it was perfect. Nook and Kindle readers were happy and everyone else got library copies super easy.
Can you recommend any other books for us that are public domain or easy to find for free/no cost online?
* Fiction or non-fiction
* all genres
* MUST BE SHORT. If it's longer than 250 pages it will get voted out.
* accessible is a plus but if it's a little bit of work that's OK as long as there are commentaries and explanatory tracts available.
I checked other threads but nothing seemed to have this particular combination of needs, so here I go. Thanks Metafilter!
