Reading is cool, and it can look cool too! The volunteers over at Standard Ebooks have collected public domain books which they polish up with fancy covers to look more appealing. That’s not all though. They also clean up the scans of books that exist and also fix any formatting and typos that exist. If you’ve read a book from Project Gutenberg you might notice misspelled words or odd line breaks due to the inaccuracies with character recognition software. With Standard Ebooks you can read knowing that you’re getting well edited material.
Standard Ebooks is a volunteer-driven effort to produce a collection of high quality, carefully formatted, accessible, open source, and free public domain ebooks that meet or exceed the quality of commercially produced ebooks. The text and cover art in our ebooks is already believed to be in the U.S. public domain, and Standard Ebooks dedicates its own work to the public domain, thus releasing the entirety of each ebook file into the public domain. All the ebooks we produce are distributed free of cost and free of U.S. copyright restrictions.
