Anyway, this might not be news to some, but there's a cool little site called Planet Ebook that offers a high-quality selection of some well-known classics for free. Sure, it's no Project Gutenberg, but the quality of the texts on Planet Ebook is amazing. The following message appears on their site:
Existing free eBooks on the web tend to be well beneath the quality of paper books, making them more difficult and less pleasurable to read. In a small way, we’re trying to change this. Our goal is to publish a small selection of high-quality eBooks — each a genuine alternative for readers wanting to enjoy reading a book without having to pay for it.
As I hinted above, the selection of titles is rather narrow, but the quality of the ebooks offered is amazing. So, the next time you are looking to download a copy of A Christmas Carol, War and Peace, or Crime and Punishment online, do yourself a favor and check out Planet Ebook.
