Classics library ebook Kindle?
October 3, 2013 11:12 PM   Subscribe

Somewhere out there is an ebook that allows a Kindle user to download free classics. When you open the book, it connects to a library with tons of free ebooks, and you can download them, bypassing the Kindle store altogether. I saw this on Metafilter a few months ago (and FPP or comment) but can't remember the name.

Best answer: I think this project, which subsequently made it to the blue, may be what you're remembering.

Mod note: Hey OP, it looks like you found your answer, but for future reference, questions about Metafilter (including trying to find past links posted on Metafilter) need to go to Metatalk.

If the goal is just to bypass the amazon store, you can use the browser to go straight to Project Gutenberg and download them directly from there, I do this all the time.

See also The Book Depository for nicely formatted PDFs of public domain classics.
