The light weight of the excellent looking book serif Erato free from FontSpring. Erato is a modern interpretation of old Dutch type, and comes with ligatures, small caps, and all the different number figure alignments.
Floofonts have some interesting free fonts to download. I particularly like Polaris, which can best be described as a chamfered slab serif with the large blocky serifs you tend to get with slab serifs but with the angled serif you tend to get on an oldstyle serif. The other fonts are various display faces which can come in handy.
Bigfish - circus style woodcut slab serif based on Clarendon
Hydrophilia - quirky geometric sans-serif
Squid - blocky sci-fi
Moby - rounded sci-fi
Hammerhead - faux black letter old style
Ordchidee - faux Asian calligraphic style
