Project Gutenberg Review

  • Project Gutenberg is a free online library offering more than 45,000 eBooks of various genres. Though the site is considered to be free and no registration is required to use it, Project Gutenberg kindly invites visitors to make a small donation for its further development.

    This online library is claimed to contain books of high quality only. The developers of Project Gutenberg assure readers that each eBook is carefully proofread before being posted on the website. It’s up to you to believe this or not, but one thing is clear – Project Gutenberg enjoys popularity. It is demonstrated by the fact that this online library gets to a new level. This year it has launched a project called Outernet, which gives us an opportunity to obtain information through satellites. Sounds amazing, is not it? Ok, let us pass over to the online library and find out what it is peculiar for.

    Frankly speaking, the interface of Project Gutenberg has nothing going for itself. There areno thematic pictures, unusual fonts or other tricks, which entice visitors. Everything is plain, important information is written in bold or in color.

    You can choose either a book catalog, website or book category to search for a certain literary piece. For those who are very precise in their search, there is a special program called Anacleto, which performs full text search.

    In the Book category section one can find literary works available in different foreign languages.It also contains subcategories, which include books from numerous scientific fields. To make data search easier and more effective, you can search pages sorted in alphabetical order. Every page under a certain title offers a list of books in their printed or audio version.

    Book catalog is organized in the manner pretty similar.Here you can browse by author, title or recently added information.

    For those who wish to keep their library at hand and be aware of literary updates, Project Gutenberg offers a mobile version.

    So, if you are looking for a simple online library with books of good quality, choose Project Gutenberg.
