If you are a reader and you haven’t seen Project Gutenberg (http://www.gutenberg.org/), you aren’t really a reader. What is Project Gutenberg, you ask? Their description says it all:
Project Gutenberg is the oldest producer of free electronic books (eBooks or etexts) on the Internet. Our collection of more than 15.000 eBooks was produced by hundreds of volunteers. Most of the Project Gutenberg eBooks are older literary works that are in the public domain in the United States. All may be freely downloaded and read, and redistributed for non-commercial use
You will never read through the mountain of texts in your lifetime (even if you are a speed reader, they keep adding new content all the time). Here is just a sample of what you will find there:
- The War of the Worlds by H. G. Wells
- War and Peace by Leo Nikoleyevich Tolstoy
- The Bible, Old and New Testaments, King James Version
- Moby Dick, or, the whale by Herman Melville
- A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
- The Odyssey by Homer
- Ethics by Aristotle
- Memoirs of Napoleon â€” Complete by Louis Antoine Fauvelet de Bourrienne
- and More!!!
The work is available in several formats. Since it is done entirely by volunteers, not all work is available in all formats. But for the techno saavy, you shouldn’t have too much trouble obtaining a readable version of what you’ve been dying to read.
