If you went there and are still confused as to why... allow me to elaborate further, with one hint...

http://www.gutenberg.org/browse/authors/d#a69


















If you are still confused, I will lay it all out.  *Free*... *Public Domain*... *downloadable*...  books!  I honestly thought that someone would have bought Project Gutenberg up earlier, but alas, now I have to do it. I have enjoyed many of the e-books from that site, it is truly a resource to cherish! The public-domain point means that any books written by authors for sale have now left copyright project and are open to the public to freely consume as they wish. Basically, think of Project Gutenberg as a huge public library. There are most assuredly dozens upon dozens of classics and less-known Victorian authors represented here.


You know what? I simply *must* create a steampunk portable e-book reader!

Well, if you're at all like me, you don't have to go into that. (Though of course I'm curious.) Wink

I use Project Gutenberg a lot, partly because I love the very concept of it. However, I haven't actually finished many of the books I've gotten from there.  Undecided

Along the same lines as the magnificent Project Gutenberg, is Librivox.org, which is essentially a Gutenberg for audio books. All books are free, open source and read by volunteers
