Feedbooks

FeedbooksGet thee to Feedbooks, forthwith!

Two words: free books. Works in the public domain, available as free pdf's, no strings attached. Enough to make a booklover weep for joy. You can read them on your computer, on your iPhone, on your Kindle, or your addiction of choice. And if you fall in love with the book you download, you can go out and buy it on paper, knowing ahead of time that you love it.

And if you self-publish, they will distribute your manuscript too. Doubt if there's a payment model involved, but if you just want to get read...

This is one of the cool things I discovered on Twitter.

Intriguing. I've been using Project Gutenberg for years, usually by downloading the raw text versions then processing them myself into whatever format I favor at the moment. Feedbooks would certainly save a step, for the works they have available right now.

Booglified? *guffaw*

This is awesome, Janet! Thanks for sharing the word.

Ed, thanks for the info. I didn't realize that the Gutenberg Project didn't format things.

I'm laughing at booglified too. :o)

Cool stuff, isn't it, Janna?

These days Project Gutenberg has been branching out into some e-formats, but straight ASCII/UTF text is still their native format.

I think I was booglified before I even got here. :D
