How to Use Project Gutenberg


A universe of books is waiting for you online!

Project Gutenberg   is a volunteer coordinated effort, started by founder, Michael Hart, to publish every public domain book ever made and offer it to readers *free* via the Internet. It is the first (and largest) single collection of free ebooks.

Once you have learned how to navigate through the pages, a cornucopia of literature—more than you could ever read in a lifetime—awaits you.

I’ll try to help you to get started here on this site.

The thing is, it’s really not that hard.  If you know how to search for anything by using Google, you can find what you want on Project Gutenberg.

Go to this link, and type in the name of the book or the author that you want to find on the top right of the page:

For example, I typed in Jane Austen and got these results:

I then clicked on the “one” author that matched my search and got these results:

Books by Jane Austen:

Books by Austen, Jane (sorted by popularity)

Another way to go is to just use Google.

Type in “Project Gutenberg” and you’ll get the book site as your first result. There will be an empty box that says “search”  Go ahead and write in what you’re looking for there and you’ll find it!

That was easy, wasn’t it? 🙂
