Mobileread's ebook library turns 15,000

Have the price of ebooks been getting you down lately?

Are you tired of the Amazon vs Macmillan mud slinging in the news lately?

Well... I am here to bring you good news...

The MobileRead eBook library now contains over 15,000 ebook uploads. These aren't just scan/OCR and transfer. For the most part the ebooks in the MobileRead library are extremely well formatted and proofread.

So, unearth a gem today in our library.

Congratulations and thanks go to all the creators, editors and uploaders for a job well done. Also, thanks to the existence of public domain laws and creative commons copyrights.

Well done MobileReaders!

Congratulations! Now I just need to actually read the books I have downloaded from here. I've discovered some new mystery authors due to this library.

Ok, I guess I will be the one to ask the stupid question: "Where is the MobileRead ebook Library?" I looked all over the site, in the sticky threads in the "Deals and Resources" forum, and the "E-book Uploads" forums. I searched Google for "MobileRead ebook Library" and I got a link to the wiki entry on Sony's ebook library. Even the "Book Uploads Posting Guidelines" don't tell you where to go.

Can someone post a link? Is there actually a page or an interface, or is this just the attachments that people put on their messages? If there is a real site, maybe it could be included in the links at the top of the page (Home, Forums, Wiki, etc.). I have been a member here for several months, and I have never some across this library everyone talks about.

Thanks!

Edit: Is this it? http://www.mobileread.com/forums/ebooks.php?forumid=130

Yes, that's it, but I also found it difficult to get to at first. Also, I still get to the index by choosing a format, then the index, then clearing the index to say "all" - except that I've now bookmarked the link.

I think it would be great if there was a link from the home page to this index.

On the subject of the library, what is the etiquette for reporting/fixing errors in the books? Should we post them to the thread, PM the author, fix them ourselves or what?

Thanks Ben!

Well, with 15k books, it would be nice to have a better interface (search by Author, or Title).

I know that is work, so I don't expect it to happen. But it would be nice.

I believe the ebooks section is another that much work is being done on. I get the impression that its new form is relatively close to release, though the behind-the-sceners would have to verify.

Might I offer that suggestions in the Feedback (<---linky) forum would be appreciated? They usually are.

Cheers,
Marc

Indeed, it is a very fine piece of work and needs to be commended, together with all who have contributed.
Thank you, from the heart.

A fine piece of work, definitely worthy of a visit. And thanks to all who have burned the midnight oils, the candles at both ends and everything in-between in order that us lower orders can enjoy some wonderful classics ....

As Marc pointed out, changes are a-foot -

so keep in tune for the soon to be announced changes that were a-foot ..... shenanagins in the deep caverns and depths of MR will soon surface......


Stay Tuned ....
