Hey, guys! I’m not here to make a review today, sorry. Things have been pretty shaky around here and I didn’t have the time (or nerve) to finish the book I’m reading. So, yesterday I received the news that I’ll be attending university this year (yaaaay)! Which is something not related to books, but I wanted to share it. Because I’m really, really happy. Oh, and if anyone’s wondering, I’ll study Biological Sciences. Nope, nothing to do with books whatsoever.
Since I’m not here with a review, I decided it would be nice to talk about the website that I mentioned on my Jane Eyre post: Project Gutenberg. I don’t know if everyone is aware of its existence – I wasn’t, until about two years ago one of my teachers showed it to me. It’s amazing. They offer more than 46,000 free eBooks, previously published bona fide. Many of the classics are available there, and you don’t have to pay anything at all.
Of course, if you want to donate, you can. It’s a really nice thing to do, it keeps the website running. What you can also do is share it with your friends and colleagues. I’ve heard that a similar website, from my country, will be shut because there aren’t many visits and downloads, if the situation doesn’t improve soon. I think that’s sad, isn’t it? Free knowledge available legally and almost no one is interested or knows about it.
There are other websites like Gutenberg, I presume, but I don’t know any of them. If you do, let me know in the comments! That would make me happy.
That’s all I have for the day. Bye!
