Larabie (http://www.larabiefonts.com/) and dafont (http://www.dafont.com/) are always good starting points for that kind of thing.

Watch your step there...
I live in a permanent shade of darkness since instaling several rounds of free fonts. For the few gems there are among them, the downside of corrupt fonts far outweighs the benefits.

I often find some really nice ones at 1001fonts.com; however, make sure you read any files that come with the font as many of them have conditions or copywrite info.

www.fontfreak.com is a decent site. Just be careful when entering the site since it is easy to click on ads.

I second the suggestion for 1001. It's the only site I use any more.

If you're just using the font for titles in a class project, you are usually okay to use the fonts for free. Still, though, read the terms.

Another good place to go for interesting fonts is www.chank.com

http://penguinfonts.com is good, sorted by tags and licenses are clearly shown :)

I'm trying to get this information collected into a little guide (http://guides.macrumors.com/index.php?title=Mac_Font_Basics_and_Sources) here, since these questions come up so often. It you see good stuff missing, add it there (or here if you'd rather), and then we won't have to remember it all :)

If I'm looking for regular well known fonts:
http://www.webpagepublicity.com/free-fonts.html
(yes they work in Font Book despite being classified on the site as "Windows fonts")

If I need to get something artsy:
http://www.1001fonts.com
http://www.acidfonts.com

Again - any font in TTF (TrueType) works in Font Book whether or not it's designated as a Mac font. Usually the "Mac" fonts listed on 1001fonts or acidfonts are just formatted for Font Book as FFIL fonts.
