Thank you so much for this in-depth information! This will help me give away free e-books for my own blog!

by mr6n8 on 3. June 2012 - 15:29  (94344)

If your blog is about free ebooks, then if you post a link (and it meets this site's criteria) it could get added to a list here.

I stumbled upon your site while trying to research a better Book Reveiw, having input Mystery/Suspense. This is a delightful find! Thanks for the hard work! I'll peruse your site for reviews and perhaps other genres? TFS

by mr6n8 on 27. October 2011 - 14:12  (82237)

The reviews are definitely worth checking out. That is the best part of this site. The reviews are done by volunteers who have an interest in the area.

Glad you enjoyed this listing. Mystery/Suspense is my 2d favorite after SciFi/Fantasy.

Thanks for the comment.

Thanks you did a great job,and such a vast range of literature some of the best classic of all time. As for myself when i feel a wee bit under the weather there nothing like a steaming cup of brewed tea with a wedge from a fresh lemon and a good novel by Edgar Allan Poe,to lift my spirit, and fill my heart with joy and inspiration. Thank you!

by mr6n8 on 11. July 2011 - 19:29  (75241)

When I was young (a long time ago) Poe was by far and away my favorite author.

I have gotten lighter in my tastes over the years-but he is still a great one.

Glad you enjoy the list.

Hi Keroffs,

With reference to this:
Project Gutenberg Australia has a large collection of novels by Australian authors, some available for online viewing and some for download.

I'm not sure that PGA is limited to Australian authors.

I think the difference between the "regular" and the Australian Gutenbergs is the legal definition employed with respect to copyright.

by mr6n8 on 17. February 2011 - 12:35  (66605)

thanks.
I have been away for a bit, but have updated the info based upon your info.
