Project Gutenberg: Offering Over 42,000 Free E-Books

The Every-Day Life of Abraham Lincoln
by Francis Fisher Browne
I wanted to share a free site with you that has been around since 1971. According to the site:
Project Gutenberg offers over 42,000 free ebooks (no fee or registration is required): choose among free epub books, free kindle books, download them or read them online. All of the ebooks were previously published by bona fide publishers and were digitized and diligently proofread with the help of thousands of Project Gutenberg volunteers.

The ebooks are free in the United States because their copyright has expired, however they may not be free of copyright in other countries. Readers outside of the United States must check the copyright laws of their respective countries before downloading or redistributing the ebooks. Project Gutenberg also has a number of copyrighted titles, for which the copyright holder has given permission for unlimited non-commercial worldwide use.
