Project Runeberg is a volunteer effort to create free electronic editions of classic Nordic (Scandinavian) literature and make them openly available over the Internet.
Founded in 1992, the project concentrates on old books from Sweden and the Nordic countries, and is an equivalent to Project Gutenberg. The catalogue seems to contain books first published in 1483.
Since it seems to be primarily a conservation project, there is a technical process involved in recontructing the books to read. See the site for more information.
Founded in 2012, Dragonwell Publishing is based in the US Northeast and publishes 4-6 books a year, focusing mostly on science fiction and fantasy.
Dragonwell Publishing titles have been featured by Publishers Weekly, ForeWord Magazine, RT Book Reviews, San Francisco Book Reviews, and Portland Book Reviews, and highlighted by Historical Novel Society and Mythopoetic Society. Our books have been among the winners of the 2013 ForeWord Book of the Year Award and 2014 Independent Publishers Book Award.
Books are available in ePub, Mobi and PDF formats.
Faded Page is an archive of eBooks that are provided completely free to everyone. The Canadian equivalent of Project Gutenberg.
The books are produced by volunteers all over the world, and we believe they are amongst the highest quality eBooks anywhere. Every one has been scanned, run through OCR software, proofed, formatted and assembled extremely carefully, using hundreds of volunteer hours. These books are public domain in Canada (because we follow the Canadian copyright laws), but if you are in another country, you should satisfy yourself that you are not breaking the copyright laws of your own country by downloading them. You are free to do whatever you like with these books, but we hope that mainly...you will enjoy reading them.
Books are available in Text, HTML, ePub, Mobi, and PDF formats.

A Taste of Honeyby kevin: Read
The beauty of the prose is only matched by the imagination behind the world-building. This novella, while short, breaks my heart, reforms it, and breaks it once more.
While the writing itself might not be to everyone's tastes, you cannot deny its beauty. Each sentence is carved and crafted, each paragraph moulded into art.
Reading Kai Ashante Wilson's work is an experience not to be missed.
All is Fairby sakina: Read
Fun, busy, and it was 3 years ago when I read it and I can't remember anything about the story, which is great because that means it's time to read it again!
Nonplayer #1by kevin: Read
Finding the print version of Nonplayer in a local comic shop blew my mind.
The amazing digital artwork is absolutely beautiful. The story - as much of a short snippet you get in a single comic book issue - is cyberpunky and fresh, to me at least.
I only recently realised it was available from Image Comics, along with issue 2. So I'm heading back into its lush artwork and enthralling world.
What people are saying about Libreture
I'm using Libreture to manage my books now and it's a very cool service...
I recently signed up to this. It's a nice way of storing all your DRM Free eBooks in one place. You can also share your library with others! It also helps support DRM-Free authors, publishers and bookshops by allowing users to link to where they got it from.
I think its really awesome, and ive been kind of glad someone is trying to build stuff in the eReading space that isn't vertically integrated.
