Are you constantly searching for materials to read? Are there classics you wish you could afford to buy and read but cannot? Worry no more because from July 4 to August 4, there is a World eBook Fair. According to the site, it is in celebration of the 35th birthday of Project Gutenberg.
This is interesting. There are around 1/3 of a million free eBooks available for downloading for that period. There are different kinds of books you could see here. Some are novels, some are technical guides and there are even children’s books. If you are curious as to what are the general categories of materials are, you could head over the Collections page. There are a lot of literary works being shared here right now. These literary works come from different countries and they come in different file formats. You can download them as PDFs, LITs (maybe for those with handheld devices), MP3s and you could also download them for your mobile phone.
Regarding the MP3 eBooks, it is interesting to note that they have some of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s “Sherlock Holmes” books. There are also some sonnets by Shakespeare. These books have been read by professionals and some have been read by computer voices.
Some of the things to note before you download anything is that the materials here are primarily for personal use. As such, you must not do anything to violate that policy.
Sponsors of the celebration include the following: Project Gutenberg, World eBook Library Consortia , DPP Store , Baen Books
