Sidelights : Notable materials from Project Gutenberg

I was just looking for some reading materials, and happened to remember the Project Gutenberg site. Spent a few minutes and ended up downloading the following :

  1. The Notebooks of Leonardo Da Vinci — Complete by Leonardo da Vinci
    (size : 1.36 MB)
  2. Relativity : the Special and General Theory by Albert Einstein {size : 201 KB (unzipped)}
  3. Art of War by Sun Tzu {size: 331 KB (no compression)}
  4. The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle {size : 7.01 MB (mp3 file)}
  5. Amusements in Mathematics by Henry Ernest Dudeney {size: 5.95 MB (Zip)}

Files noted above are not in .pdf (the one about Sherlock Holmes is an Audio book), so if you're looking for books that are in a different format that fits to whatever reader you may have, try another site , which has the same collection as that of Project Gutenberg but has converted the eBooks to different file formats (pdf , iPod notes, etc.)
