Johannes Gutenberg’s invention of mechanical movable type printing is one of the most important events in human history. It created many new opportunities for learning, led to a sharp rise in literacy rates, and caused a dramatic cultural shift that helped to create the world we live in today.
We applaud projects that foster education, and that’s why our mascot owl Lingo recommends checking out Project Gutenberg. Here’s more about this educational website:
“Project Gutenberg offers over 45,000 free ebooks: choose among free epub books, free kindle books, download them or read them online.
We carry high quality ebooks: All our ebooks were previously published by bona fide publishers. We digitized and diligently proofread them with the help of thousands of volunteers.
No fee or registration is required, but if you find Project Gutenberg useful, we kindly ask you to donate a small amount so we can buy and digitize more books. Other ways to help include digitizing more books, recording audio books, or reporting errors, which you can do from the website.
Over 100,000 free ebooks are available through our partners, affiliates and resources.”
