Wow! I think I have heard of Project Gutenberg, but never checked it out. I found it to be impressive. Useful to me? I'm not yet sure, since everything is so old the copyright has expired. But what a great way to preserve and share it.
The other site I took a close look at was BookCrossing.com
- where people can release their books into the wild and track them. It is sort of like the website WheresGeorge.com that tracks dollar bills. I like how you can even establish a place for releasing books. Hmmmm... thinking about creating a space for this in my library. People constantly want to make donations and not all are useful. It also prompts online discussions about the books.
