Hi,

http://www.freeliterature.org

Exists since april 15, 2010.

Two goals: supporting Project Gutenberg (by producing e-text) and free e-literature on the web in general ... and more (by linking to 600+ sites that matter, all over the world in many different languages - including general literature, poetry, Greek, Roman and Medieval, Art, Music, Audiobooks, Books and Literature in general, Research, Education and Scientific Publications).

From the Projects page, check out a book you like to work on for a first or second round proofreading. Beginners are fully supported, people wanting to do more will be guided through the whole process - from scanning to pleasantly readable e-book.

(Links will be more ordered thematically and by language in the near future...)

Enjoy!!!

Best Regards,

Marc D'Hooghe

Your site looks awful and you can't even proofread your own writing.

At first sight: An impressive linklist on the first site. Check the link of the second please. A project that probably deserves (and needs ) some encouragement and backing. Good luck with this.

Why does a "project" that revolves around charging people for a list of links to free ebooks deserve encouragement and backing?

Link to World eBook Fair (which is not my site) is corrected.

Thanks,

That seems a tad harsh to me.

I did note in one of the pages that he pointed out that he was Belgian, so I'm assuming that English isn't his first language. So I'd be willing to cut some slack on spelling and grammar for that.

This seems very worthwhile, but it's a great pity that they've chosen PDF as a format. As we all know, PDF was never intended to be an eBook format and, although it can be extremely effective if the book is formatted for the page size of a particular device, it's very poor when it comes to dealing with the multitude of different screen sizes that are out there.

Marc, I haven't seen this site before. You have a very impressive list of links to ebook and audiobook sites.

I want to contribute. I'm happy to proof-read a book - now I just have to choose which one. I'm interested to know what format the final product is and hope it's downloadable and suitable for a portable device:

Quote from your website: "Finally the text is massaged into a pleasantly readable format fit for online reading."

Here's karma for you. If I could give negative karma to Mathlete, I would.
