Many of you may already be familiar with the Gutenberg Project that is composed of a team of volunteers endeavoring to make as many books as possible available online at no cost. Currently, there are over 50,000 books. Gutenberg makes it easy for you to find just the titles that might interest you.
When you get to the site, click on “Book Categories” in the menu on the left side of the page. When a new page opens, scroll down where you can select from categories such as children’s literature, mysteries, detective stories, science fiction, one-act plays and more! Click on any category, and a new page opens with a list of the free books available. These books can be read online or downloaded.
In the Children’s Literature bookshelf, access the writings of L. Frank Baum, Frances Hodgson Burnett, Edith Nesbit, and Anna Sewell.
Other authors in the bookshelves of Project Gutenberg include Agatha Christie, Andre Norton, Lester del Rey, and Dostoyevsky.
Project Gutenberg has also put together a selection of audio books. Imagine your family enjoying one of the following authors during a long ride in the car or around a crackling fire:
- Hans Christian Andersen

One more thing: Project Gutenberg is always in need of more volunteers willing to proofread one page per day. You or your teen might like to join the team and take advantage of this exciting, fulfilling, skill-building opportunity.
