Free eBooks by Project Gutenberg

Project Gutenberg would allow anyone to have a digital library at no cost. Project Gutenberg offered more than 33,000 high-quality proofread ebooks in December 2010, in various formats for any electronic device (computer, PDA, mobile phone, smartphone, and ebook reader).

1) Public Domain Books: These books are in the public domain in the United States and everybody — including Project Gutenberg and you — may read and distribute them. If you don’t live in the United States you’ll have to check the laws of the country you live in before downloading and distributing our ebooks.

A Project Gutenberg ebook is made out of two parts:

  • the public domain book and
  • the non public domain Project Gutenberg trademark and license.

    If you strip the Project Gutenberg license and all references to Project Gutenberg from the ebook, you are left with a public domain ebook. You can do anything you want with that.These books are in the public domain in the United States and everybody — including Project Gutenberg and you — may read and distribute them. If you don’t live in the United States you’ll have to check the laws of the country you live in before downloading and distributing our ebooks.

    2) Copyrighted Books: Some authors give Project Gutenberg permission to distribute their book(s). This permission does not automatically expand to include you. If you want to distribute a copyrighted ebook you found on PG, you have to contact the author and stipulate an agreement.

    3) Using the Project Gutenberg Trademark
