We've been telling my mother-in-law about Project Gutenberg for years. It's an amazing resource, after all, and we've donated money and everything. She likes classic novels, and this might be an incentive for her to get an e-book or a Kindle, which would make reading a lot easier for her. Her vision is bad enough that normal paperback print is difficult for her.
And she's computer literate enough that she could use it.
Yesterday, she emailed jonbaker all about this WONDERFUL website with THOUSANDS of books, all for FREE. And it's NOT a hoax because she knows someone who has used it. And she's passing it on to us.
This is just typical parent behavior, right?
