Milestones: Project Gutenberg Passes 40,000 Internally Produced eBooks, 100K eBooks Overall

From a Project Gutenberg Blog Post by Founder Michael Hart:

Project Gutenberg, the granddaddy of all eBook libraries, announced today they have put number 40,000 of internally produced free eBooks online as of March 1st.

This raises their grand total to 100,000, as they receive a number of eBooks from other producers worldwide. These figures even subtract 15,000 for various duplications.

If you have a Kindle, set your browser to: http://bit.ly/gutmagic to partake of these eBooks free of charge.


Two Project Gutenberg Download Sites: http://www.gutenberg.org and http://www.gutenberg.cc.

The first site has most of the 40,000 eBooks created from the Project Gutenberg volunteers around the world and has eBooks in 60 languages in a variety of formats, and has a site that’s very user friendly to cellphones, iPods, etc.

The second site has eBooks in .pdf format, 100+ languages are represented, and also includes some 15,000 from those at the first site.

You can also do searches for Project Gutenberg of Canada, Australia and Europe, for even more free eBooks.
