"North Carolina libraries, including Moore County Library, and NC LIVE have teamed up with San Francisco-based nonprofit Internet Archive on a project that gives library patrons free access to a large downloadable e-book collection.
The collaboration allows North Carolinians to check out and download more than 200,000 e-books published between 1923 and 1999 through Open Library, an e-book lending platform developed by Internet Archive."
Did anybody else know that ebooks have been around since 1923? Go back up and read, I'll wait.
You read that right, "200,000 ebooks published between 1923 and 1999." Who knows what kinds of treasures are in that collection? I can only imagine Hemingway and Fitzgerald sitting around Paris, Kindle in one hand, brain lubricant in the other, wondering how such marvels presented themselves. Technology, am I right?
