EPUB books now available at Project Gutenberg

From the Blog Post by Mike Cook:

It was only a few months ago that Project Gutenberg announced an effort to make mobile editions of their titles available. This was of course big news, however, in my eyes the latest eBook format to be released by PG is even bigger.

Project Guternberg now has most of their titles available in the industry standard EPUB eBook format and free from any DRM (Digital Restrictions Management)!

Although only embraced as an eBook standard within the last 12 months, it has been truly embraced by many big names including; Sony, Google, Penguin, Harper Collins and Adobe, to name but a few. There are also many EPUB readers, both software and hardware, that can read eBooks in this format.

For all you gadget lovers, you can read EPUB formatted books on;

+ Phone and iPod Touch using the very popular Stanza Reader.
+ Google Andriod and other Linux-based mobile devices using FBReader
+ Sony Reader PRS-505 and PRS-700
+ There are a number of desktop readers such as the wonderful Calibr
