Proofreading Project Gutenberg – Bolax: Imp or Angel-Which?

If you have ever read a classic book in an electronic format, especially if you didn’t have to pay for it, there’s a good chance you were enjoying the fruits of Project Gutenberg. Since the early 1970s, Project Gutenberg has been converting out-of-copyright texts into electronic formats and making them freely available. Since March of 2012, the Digital Library team has been contributing some of their digitized titles to Project Gutenberg. One of the latest of our books to be made available as a Project Gutenberg e-book is Bolax: Imp or Angel–Which? by Mrs. Josephine Culpeper. (We think the title alone would stir your curiosity.)

Previous titles we have featured and proofread are Atchoo!, How to Fence, The Brighton Boys in the Trenches and the list goes on.

Visit the Blue Electrode Blog to find out more about the Distributed Proofreaders Project and to follow Falvey’s participation in this project.

    Might also be of interest – http://www.freeliterature.org started in April 2010 – also digitizing e-books for PG (difference with Distributed Proofreaders: people engage themselves to do a round of proofreading on a complete book…) – besides that, Free Literature also links to more than 600 websites worldwide providing free e-literature. Do pay a visit! :)

    Best,
    Marc
