Happy New Year

I've been really busy with all the reading I've been doing, I was trying to get hold of the Gutenberg DVD, and I downloaded 700 megs of it but it turns out that you can only burn it to DVDs and I only have a CD-RW. I settled for the CD which has around 600 books. A lot of reading material, but all of it is outdated.

Project Gutenberg relies primarily on books for which the copyright has worn off; that includes most of the major arts and fiction. It does not by any mean include those newly published books which have something to say. Much of the 17,000 books they carry at the moment are books that are read-worthy because it is the common people who donate the book, their effort and most of all their time to such causes.
