That is my assortment of American literature from the 19th century to 1950. There are not any fantasy and science fiction books, although: these would be the object of a separate torrent.
The books are primarily in .epub and .pdf, as a result of I do not personal a Kindle and I dislike the very concept of a proprietary format and e-reader which binds you as its slave, in trade for the low worth. I often go for ereaders which help the best variety of codecs.
The folders are by writer’s surname. As for the information themselves, my naming conference is totally different than present in collections that come from Calibre. I don’t prefer it when the books are by ebook title and never by writer, as a result of then in case you don’t have sufficient books by the identical individual to make a particular writer folder, discovering what you need is far simpler if all works by the identical writer are grouped collectively.
These are usually not my very own scans or OCR. They’ve been collected over a few years from the online, both from big messy guide torrents containing a little bit of the whole lot or from free obtain websites corresponding to gutenberg, and a bunch of them got here with my e-readers.
My solely benefit is organizing. I picked these which belong to this class from the chaos of most ebook torrents, and renamed them persistently to prune out doubles and make search straightforward. I’ve taken out meaningless folder numbers, deleted .opf and different ineffective information. In lots of instances I’ve added a .txt file with information about authors, added writer’s yr of delivery and demise.
You may discover some books twice: often as a result of one is a scan of a daily ebook and the opposite one with the blown-up font used for e-readers, or typically one will embrace a canopy and the opposite gained’t. .. issues like that. The gathering isn’t compressed, so if this stuff don’t matter to you, be happy to skip downloading one of many two.
