Project Gutenberg, which has been digitizing books in the public domain for over 30 years has announced an electronic book fair from July 4 to August 4. Over 300,000 titles, many on loan from e-book library sites that generally charge for access, will be available for free download. The organization plans to repeat the fair annually with an increasing number of titles.
Unfortunately, the site link published on Boston.com this morning (worldbookfair.com) was down when I checked it.
An innovative idea from an organization devoted to promoting literacy. Kudos!
