Pocket PC eBooks Watch - eBook and beyond
Somewhere in the near future, you will read a book that hasn't been produced in the way books are normally produced - i.e. printed on paper and bound. Digital books or ebooks exist in cyberspace as bits and bytes, but they're no less "books" for being represented by small electric currents. Many literary masterpieces can be read online and are accessible from myriad sources, some free and some for a fee.
More exciting is the extensive Australian site Project Gutenberg of Australia, which offers 250 free ebooks, including works by Australian authors and titles which are associated with Australia (although not necessarily written by an Australian). The local site also specialises in books of Australian exploration so you can read not only about the expeditions of Burke and Wills but also Shackleton, Mawson, Leichhardt, Forrest and Sturt, among others. The site is also looking for project volunteers so, if you're looking to do "your bit" for literature, you might consider this.
