Free Books on the Web

Hey cats and kittens!

Ever hear of “Project Gutenberg“? That’s just one of the growing number of free Web libraries out there that let you download complete, free (albeit usually old) collections of books. Let’s carefully roam around a bit and see what we can see concerning wine…

But Project Gutenberg ain’t the only show in town… How about…

By now, you should be getting the idea… But beyond all that, there now are online aggregators that collect lists of the libraries. Check out xmarks

But before you go off half-cocked, remember how I said we should roam around “carefully”? Well, we should. Some of these sites are fairly complicated, and it’s easy to get lost. (Who knows where you’ll end up?) So if you’re really not at ease browsing, seek out a more experienced friend, and take a few lessons over a glass of wine – never a bad idea.

Stay busy, and see you by those Alexandrian racks…
