Literary Texts contains hundreds of Russian novels, poems, articles, short stories, and other forms of literature, all in the original. Texts are not PDFs, and so can be copy/pasted into word processors and edited, making it an excellent resource for quoting original Russian, in addition to granting free access to hundreds of classics. The site is in Russian.
