Project Gutenberg eBook titles

Project Gutenberg is a selection of free eBooks containing more than 30,000 titles that are available in the public domain, allowing free download access to anyone in the United States with an eReader or computer. The library website has a link in the left column to the Gutenberg titles currently being offered. The titles are always available for immediate download and are compatible with any EPUB software.

Most titles in the Gutenberg collection are free of copyrights in the United States, meaning they can not only be downloaded for reading, they can also be used for distribution, recreation and adaptation. Teachers can print and distribute excerpts for their classes; artists can perform the works in front of an audience; and titles can be transferred to audio or other formats. Each title provides licensing information when it is downloaded, so be sure to check the rights prior to utilizing the books for commercial benefit.

Titles include many of the classics by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Jane Austen, Mark Twain, and Charles Dickens as well as the Bible and Aesop's Fables.
