That is my assortment of English (British) and Irish literature (so no American authors and no overseas, translated authors) from the Center Ages until the primary many years of the 20th century, simply earlier than WW2.
There isn’t any Science Fiction, Fantasy and the like, as a result of it is going to be the topic of one other, separate torrent (you will discover Wells, Tolkien, Diana Wynne Jones, Neil Gaiman and J.Okay.Rowling there) .
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 ereader which binds you as its slave, in trade for the low worth. I often go for ereaders which help the best variety of codecs.
My naming conference is totally different than present in collections that come from Calibre. I hate it when the books are by guide title and never by writer, as a result of I would like the books by the identical writer to be proven collectively even when they don’t seem to be grouped in a folder.
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 every part or one after the other from free obtain websites corresponding to gutenberg, archive org and such; a bunch of them got here with my numerous e-readers.
My solely benefit, then, is accumulating and organizing them, however I guarantee you that it was fairly a bit of labor.
I picked these which belong to this class from the chaos of most ebook torrents, or downloaded the free books one after the other. Then I renamed them persistently to prune out doubles and make search straightforward. I’ve taken out meaningless folder numbers, including as an alternative authors’ yr of start and demise. Inside, I deleted .opf , bin and different ineffective information. In lots of instances I’ve added a .txt file with information about authors or discovered a ebook cowl when there wasn’t any.
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.
There’s one file which should not be there.
John Window Irving – A Prayer For Owen Meany.pdf
John Winslow (not Window, LOL!) Irving not solely is American, not British, however he is additionally dwelling, and this ebook was written in 1989, so on no account is it a basic.
So please delete this file or put it elsewhere.
Regardless of how rigorously one checks, there’s sure to be a mistake someplace, sigh!
