Read an eBook Week

The website has a nice, concise history of the eBook — spanning from Plato, Gutenberg, to penny dreadfuls, paperback novels, and Project Gutenberg. In terms of eBooks historical trivia, interesting to think that one could make an argument that the ebook had its origins forty years ago in 1971 with Michael Hart and what would become Project Gutenberg: “The first ‘e-book’ was born—a copy of the Declaration of Independence. Those humble beginnings would become Project Gutenberg.”
