How is this site different from the dozens of other sites doing the same thing, scraping content from Project Gutenberg and formating it into HTML, with some sort of sideline money making thing (in this case, coupons).

I guess I liked the remarkably clean design and it hasn't been posted here.

So Tzu me.

I'll feel stupid an hour from now. Until then leave me alone.

I'd like to see it sorted by books vs poems vs short stories, but other than that I like it. Thanks for the link.

I may be a hack, but at least I do more than provide a front-end for Project Gutenburg.
