Hi everyone!

Today we’re going to talk about Project Gutenberg, which is a U.S. based non-profit that digitizes public domain books. In other words they digitize books that don’t have a copyright. So what’s great about this non-profit is that they make these books available to the public online as e-books, epubs and more. So lots of different formats. 

The story is not often told but in my opinion it’s a pretty big deal. So in this episode we’ll learn a little bit more about it, how it got started, and how you can take advantage of this free content. But before we get to that, let’s start with a joke. 

Why did the Romanian stop reading for the night? 

 Any ideas?

To give his Bucharest.
