Gutenberg has a slush pile

Books on line since 1971, and now self publishing, apparently anyone can play.
677 books up so far, some of which look less than exciting.

Pdf only

Hmmmm

Well yes, of course. My post was to alert members of the forum to an extra selection of books newly available in addition to the main site. There is also Gutenberg Australia for more public domain books. I just thought it interesting that a not for profit organisation would provide a self pub facility.
