About Project Gutenberg

Thank you for your interest in Project Gutenberg!

Project Gutenberg is the Internet's oldest producer of FREE electronic books (eBooks or eTexts).
What books will I find
in Project Gutenberg?

Project Gutenberg is the brainchild of Michael Hart, who in 1971 decided that it would be a really good idea if lots of famous and important texts were freely available to everyone in the world. Since then, he has been joined by hundreds of volunteers who share his vision.
Now, more than thirty years later, Project Gutenberg has the following figures (as of November 8th 2002): 203 New eBooks released during October 2002, 1975 New eBooks produced in 2002 (they were 1240 in 2001) for a total of 6267 Total Project Gutenberg eBooks. 119 eBooks have been posted so far by Project Gutenberg of Australia

Nah, don't think so. Touch, crack and open a book. Flick from one page to another, put it down, pick it up, take it to the pool, put a beer on it.
