FREE Public Domain eBooks from Project Gutenberg

I wanted to share a good post from the art blog Making A Mark about free ebooks that are in the Public Domain from Project Gutenberg.

The book that Kathryin wrote about was called The Practice And Science Of Drawing by Harold Speed.

The books are published in .epub format, and although the Project Gutenberg has a reader, what do you do if you want to read it off line after you have downloaded it?

You can download Adobe Digital Editions for free, but after install they ask for a Adobe username and password. I did not go throught the process of doing that.

If you are a Firefox user (like me), then you can download an add on called EPUBreader and I found this to be a much more friendly option. Using this you can download the .epub file, and view it in Firefox by just using “File Open”

Here is a link to the Project Gutenberg Art Bookshelf that lists all the Art Books currently available.

I just started viewing and downloading some books, it is a great site to get some free books.
