World eBook Fair

The World eBook Fair runs July 4-August 4, 2011.

The fair’s aim is to provide free public access for a month to some 6.5 million eBooks.

Project Gutenberg and the Internet Archive are both contributing organizations.

Each will be presenting a number of items in other media during 2011 — such as music, movies, artwork, and dance choreography.

The available collections include reference books and scientific items, as well as approximately 50,000 music entries (on top of 12,000 that debuted last year).

All are welcome to join the World Public Library for an annual membership of US$8.95 per year.

Members can download from a selection of about 2 million PDF eBooks.
