Something of Interest

TerritorialMale • • • Thursday, February 16, 2006

Presenting a reader's paradise on the internet a.k.a. Project Guttenberg. The site boasts of 17,000 downloadable books in their archives. All for free. Free, free, free! And free as in gratis as in without charge as in complimentary. Sorry for overdoing that, but then the web has varied definitions of the term 'free'. They boast a great collection of readable material although I still wasn't able to find Jonathan Livingston Seagull. (Hints will be appreciated greatly). Behold, I present to you the top five downloads:

  1. Notebooks by Leonardo da Vinci
  2. Kamasutra by Vatsayana (what else!)
  3. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austin
  4. Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (an all time favourite)
  5. Little Journeys to the Homes of the Great by Elbert Hubbard. (hadn't heard about that one before.)

There is also Amusement in Mathematics by H. E. Dudeney for the numerically inclined and Relativity, Theory by ??? No prizes for guessing correctly. They also have a sizeable collection of Music Sheets, Moving Pictures, Still Pictures among others. I can't seem to hide my excitement. I spent nearly an hour drooling over the catalogue. Ga-ga-ga.

Finally, you may also download an ISO file to burn your own CDs and if your network doesn't have the oomph, you can also request for a free CD (although it does mention something about donations). For all this, who wouldn't spare a few bucks.

Still no Jonathan Livingston Seagull though. Ah well! Maybe someday.
