Got an email about a new site called Libertary. It’s a free “book reading” site where you can find a selection of books that can be read on your PC or Mac for free.
According to the FAQ: The publishing business is in transition from a bookstore/library model emphasizing distribution of physical books to an electronic model based on the spread of knowledge. Libertary was conceived to be a part of this transition by bringing books to readers in new ways through technology and identifying new revenue sources for authors and publishers.
The site will support itself, they say, by ads, donations and by providing links to booksellers of the books they feature.
