We’ve reported on Freeliterature.org several times. It’s one of the best, if not the best, compilations of free ebook sites on the web. Now I’ve gotten an email from Marc D’Hooghe of the site asking for help:
There is a growing demand on the web, generally at different social reading sites and also at our proofreading partner Girlebooks.com for a book by Carroll Watson Rankin, Dandelion Cottage (first published 1905 I believe, by Henry Holt, NY). Nothing freely available on the web this instant. Books themselves, mostly antiquarian (expensive) – we are in search of usable scans (300dpi) to make an e-book. If any of the public would have the opportunity to provide, we would be happy.
Marc promises that the book will be made available at Project Gutenberg as well.
