CD-ROM World, September 1994
"Project Gutenberg is a non-profit organization that releases electronic versions of books, speeches, and other documents that have fallen into the public domain. The documents are distributed on the Internet and online services, and also (you saw this coming, right?) on CD-ROM."
"Why would anyone want to read a book on a computer? The biggest advantages are low cost and the ease of searching a title - or an entire library - for specific information.
"The disc conforms to ISO-9660, the most common CD-ROM format, so the text files can be read or searched on just about any computer and CD-ROM drive available. Each document is in plain-vanilla ASCII, so that everyone using anything from Apples to Z-80s can read them. Fancy graphics and text formatting are spurned in favor of small, easily shared documents. All you need is word processor or other program that can read large files. (The files are also included in ZIP format.)
"The Project Gutenberg CD-ROM is not flashy, but it certainly can be useful - especially for those researching classic literature."
