Project Gutenberg Australia
Ebooks are digitised versions of paper books. That is to say, they are computer files. The ebooks available from Project Gutenberg Australia, all of which are free of charge, are usually provided in 'txt' or 'html' format and can be read on any personal computer or laptop, using a text editor such as Notepad, which comes bundled with every copy of Microsoft Windows, or with a web browser such as Internet Explorer or Firefox. However, when this basic method is used to read ebooks one is not able to bookmark pages for future reference or jump to a particular chapter from the Table of Contents. These shortcomings, have been overcome by the development of software specifically designed to read ebooks on personal computers and laptops. Good examples are Tom's eTextReader from Fellnersoft and yBook and yRead from Spacejock Software.
