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!

“Delighting in existence O monks, are gods and men; they are attached to existence. they revel in existence. When the Dhamma for the cessation of existence is being preached to them, their minds do not leap towards it, do not get pleased with it, do not get settled in it, do not find confidence in it. That is how, monks, some lag behind … (It. p 43)”

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.
