A list of useful web sites for period sources

Post  Zwack on Sat Oct 11, 2008 7:51 pm

We should probably have a list of useful web sites for period sources...

Project Gutenberg has lots of public domain books (Verne, Wells, Carroll,...)
Distributed Proofreaders is helping in the effort.
Librivox has lots of free audio books
Public Domain Torrents Has a bunch of movies including Sherlock Holmes ones.

Anyone want to add any more? Any music sources along these lines?

Z.

[Note: this was split off the "Alice's Adventures" topic.]

Free ebooks, available in many formats, including PDF; covers all genres so not everything is going to be of interest Smile

http://manybooks.net/
http://feedbooks.com/
http://www.munseys.com/site/home

(disclaimer - I haven't used any of these sites yet but they are recommended by the folks on the Mobile Read forum. The Mobile Read forum http://www.mobileread.com/ is also a good source of free ebooks mostly formatted for specific readers.)

What a great idea starting a new thread for it... Smile

Unfortunately this was one of those ideas that sort of grew as I posted... But thank you for splitting it.
