English Translation of the Sutta Pitaka freely available!

It looks like the Pali Text Society has made available the entire English translation of the Sutta Pitaka in digital format for free!

This is absolutely fantastic. I am totally flabbergasted and most thankful to the Pali Text Society.

Best to be aware that many of these translations are around eighty to a hundred years old - the language and grammar can be a little different to what you are used to.

With metta,
