Project Gutenburg

Did you know you could access over 56,000 books for free online?  Project Gutenburg hosts a huge collection of digitised e-books, available for free.  As well as streams of literature, it also holds reference books and cookbooks.

Project Gutenburg is a volunteer effort to digitally archive books after copyright clearance, which effectively means it includes all the timeless classics.  Most books in the collection are distributed as public domain under U.S. copyright law.  Its goal is “to provide as many e-books in as many formats as possible for the entire world to read in as many languages as possible”.  Luckily, most releases are in English.  New books are added every week.

The books are available in Plain text, HTML, EPUB, PDF, and MOBI (Kindle).  In addition to downloading straight to your PC or device, there is also the option to download straight to Dropbox, Google Drive, or One Drive. Here’s the link: http://www.gutenberg.org/

Happy reading all!
