The Open Library is Always Open

One web page for every book ever published. It's a lofty but achievable goal.

What I like most about this concept is that the group doesn't want to collect, standardize and catalog; they just want to catalog and they want others to help. It's like the ultimate wiki project.

The site offers many different formats to read both online and offline, and will help you find the book in a brick and mortar library or bookstore as well. I especially like the 150+ year old versions that have been scanned in as readable eBooks.

The Open Library

Happy hunting...
