There has been an explosion of on-line books in the past year. When looking up ARLT’s founder, Dr WHD Rouse, for a forthcoming article, I found about 20 of his books digitalised and available on the Internet Archive.
Books on the Internet Archive are available in several formats including flip book (the whole book photographed and there for you to turn the pages), PDF, Full Text and DjVu.
The Full Text version is a small plain text file to download, very useful if you want to do a search on your computer; but the examples I have looked at are ‘as is’, uncorrected and often full of mistakes. Also, they have no pictures. Flip Books have everything – text, pictures, graffiti, the lot.
