Standard ebooks: get free, nicely formatted e-books

I’ll let the site itself speak:

Standard Ebooks is a volunteer driven, not-for-profit project that produces lovingly formatted, open source, and free public domain ebooks.

Ebook projects like Project Gutenberg transcribe ebooks and make them available for the widest number of reading devices. Standard Ebooks takes ebooks from sources like Project Gutenberg, formats and typesets them using a carefully designed and professional-grade style guide, lightly modernizes them, fully proofreads and corrects them, and then builds them to take advantage of state-of-the-art ereader and browser technology.

Standard Ebooks aren’t just a beautiful addition to your digital library—they’re a high quality standard to build your own ebooks on.

If you’ve ever downloaded books from the brilliant repository of free e-books that is Project Gutenberg, you know the quality is sorely lacking in terms of proofing, corrections, typography, metadata, covers, et cetera, so this is lovely.
