“World eBook Fair: July 4th to August 4th 2011. Download Your Selections from (6,500,000+ PDF eBooks) Six Million eBooks Titles.”
So says the World eBook Fair website. They also say…
“The collections include light and heavy reading materials, more reference books, scientific items, etc., and about 50,000 music entries in addition to the 12,000 that debuted last year. Please note that The Internet Archive and Project Gutenberg are also presenting a number of items in other media; music, movies and artwork, even dance choreography, are included.”
As the format is .pdf, downloading and reading should be fairly simple as long as you have a .pdf reader, like Adobe.
After August 4th. a private membership fee is required if you want to continue downloading ebooks from World Public Library. UBC Library does not subscribe to World Public Library, but we do have ongoing access to Project Gutenberg and Internet Archive ebooks.
