Project Gutenberg Gets Social and Launches Official Facebook Page

Mike Cook Writes on Project Gutenberg News:

In exploring new ways of connecting people to Project Gutenberg’s vast collection of free ebooks we’ve created our very own Facebook page. Here you’ll find all kinds of information and status updates.

It should be noted that this is very much experimental – it may work, then again it may not. The more everyone gets involved, the more successful it will be.

Head over to the new Project Gutbenberg Facebook Page.

Cook adds that although there is another Project Gutenberg page on Facebook the page listed above is the official one.


Our webmaster, Marcello Perathoner, is looking for people with previous PG and Facebook experience to help administer the new Facebook page. Tasks will include; answering questions from users, removing spam, writing status updates, etc.


First, go over to Facebook and ‘Like’ the page, then send Marcello an email ( Please include your Facebook name in the email so he know’s who to make an admin.
