Gutenberg and Internet Archive are wonderful resources, but the texts are poorly formatted for actual use, especially on ereaders.
This is a volunteer driven initiative to bring these texts up to date with modern standards and make them look as good as possible on the page.
Been re-reading Sherlock Holmes books from here. The books are really well done.
@necopinus Reading Don Quixote. It's a collection of 1000 tiny changes that go together to make a world of difference.
@ben Awesome, the book for my next book club meeting is on there.
@ben This is wonderful, did not know the project.
While I favour paper myself, I can't wait to get home and dust off my kindle to load some books on there. I'll be on vacation in a few weeks, so they'll come in handy!
