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

    "I love to use My eCoach because it allows me to produce a very professional lesson plan. I share my work with other teachers at conferences and in my district. I work hard to develop strong lesson plans tied to Michigan content standards and it is important to me that my finished work looks good and reflects the amount of time and energy I have invested it. My eCoach tools are easy to use and I am proud of the results they produce.

    In addition, My eCoach makes it easy to encourage other teachers trying to create lesson plans tied to their content standards. I am able to give them feedback through each step of the process. Even though they may be creating their first lesson plan, they are delighted with the resulting product. It empowers them to try other technology tools that are new to them.

    I have used My eCoach for the past ten years. I have created lesson plans for a state level organization, as well as for the State Department of Education. In all that time, I have never seen another tool that can compare to the tools on My eCoach. In ease of use and in the product it produces, My eCoach provides the best tools available."
