New site: Litfy - Free classics library, apps

Came across this today and didn't see a thread on it. I've not got much use for it myself but I'm curious what others think. The site is Litfy and it's:
Quote:
a completely free e-book library. Litfy offers readers free access to a vast library of classical novels. You can basically read all you want, when you want at no cost!
It's currently in beta. Public domain stuff, but their value-add is their upcoming apps for Android and iOS, and features such as bookmarks, note-taking, discussion groups, highlighting and list-making.

I thought it seemed interesting and just wanted to share.

Thanks for the heads up. I like classic literature, so I'll keep my eye on this site.

So far as I can tell one can only read the books on one's computer, and can't download them. I'm not sure I see the point in that.

Perhaps they are trying to create a "social media" book site? Won't fly with only web based public domain stuff.... (just my opinion.. I'll stick with Google books, Gutenberg, et al.)

I looked at it yesterday, and I think the problem is that they don't yet have more books than that.
