Distributed Proofreaders (found here) could use your help. The concept behind Distributed Proofreaders is to proof public-domain e-texts for posting on the Gutenberg Site. Past projects have included things like Pope's translations of the Iliad and the Odyssey as well as a great many others.

Damien], and yes, Chesterton--Currently I'm carrying Heretics, Orthodoxy, The Man Who Was Thursday, St. Thomas Aquinas, and some selected essays and poetry.
