Project Gutenberg

I actually found this years ago, but I thought it would be worth blogging about.

Project Gutenberg is an online community project aimed at created electronic versions of public domain works. Daunting task surely, but with the help of hundreds it doesn't seem so terrible.

My wife recently blogged about the woes of a recent translation she started to read. Since the best translations are currently checked out, I figured, like any good web designing husband, to go online to my favorite book resource and see what they had. They actually have four different translations available. There's even one in there by Alexandar Pope.

As a side note: ibiblio is cool.

Hey, I would like to blog. What do I need to do to get my own? Do I have to pass some kind of initiation? :)

Tom, my friend,

Consider yourself initiated. :)

I'll e-mail you with the rules of the gauntlet you must pass. Given your height, you should do well. :)

I just downloaded Pride and Prejudice from Project Gutenburg for my palm the other day.

And ibiblio is nifty as I have said before there are cool greek lessons there to be had.
