I have this idea I'm caliing it: #ProjectGutenbergTop5.

If you're reading this and you accept the challenge, reply with YOUR TOP 5 books which reside on Project Gutenberg that you would choose to save from a burning library.


I thought of this idea after reading the article on Boing Boing about Project Gutenberg.
https://boingboing.net/2019/04/11/one-hour-service.html

After reading it, I felt like I was experiencing the book - "Fahrenheit 451: The Temperature At Which Books Burn" By Ray Bradbury. If you haven't read the book, I recommend it.

:cool:

Just FYI: You can list more than 5 if you wish. I chose 5 for the challenge because it felt like a small enough number, anyone could easily fulfill by browsing Project Gutenberg's website.

I spent hours on Project Gutenberg's website (it's almost like taking me to a bookstore, lol). I could not bring myself to choose only 5 books. So, here are ten books I would grab FIRST, which reside on Project Gutenberg:

"The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" by Mark Twain
"The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" by Mark Twain
"Grimms' Fairy Tales" by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm
"Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" by Lewis Carroll
"Through the Looking-Glass" by Lewis Carroll
"Common Sense" by Thomas Paine
"Leaves of Grass" by Walt Whitman
"Walden, and On The Duty Of Civil Disobedience" by Henry David Thoreau
"Nature" by Ralph Waldo Emerson
"The Complete Collection of Stories & Poems of Edgar Allan Poe" by Edgar Allan Poe
