Project Gutenberg’s 30,000+ library of e-book titles will be available for the iPad

Mon, Mar 22, 2010


Project Gutenberg is an initiative to digitize classic books with the intention of encouraging the “creation and distribution of eBooks.” As it stands now, Project Gutenberg is home to over 30,000 texts, many of which are in the public domain, that are available as free drm-free downloads. And the good news is that all 30,000+ titles will be available for free download and viewing on the iPad.

Now, we’re assuming (as in hoping) Apple will also give us an easy-as-iTunes way to drag, drop, manage and sync free ePub books over to the iPad but we just don’t know for sure. There are a variety of other ways to do it, including the same super-combo of Calibre and Stanza that works so well for the iPhone and iPod touch today, but we’ll have to wait for April 3 to know for sure.
