Where to Download All the Books that just Re-Entered the Public Domain:

2019 marks the first time a huge quantity of books published in 1923—including works by Virginia Woolf, Agatha Christie, and Robert Frost—have become legally
downloadable since digital books became a thing.

It’s a big deal—the Internet Archive had a party in San Francisco to celebrate. Next year, works from 1924 will enter the public domain, and so-on.

This Vice Article has links to some of the places where you can access these books:

Personal Note : I've been on and using the internet long enough that I remember when the disaster of the Bono Act was signed (and had some etexts I had to remove from my old web site back then that were no longer legal to circulate).

Oooh, I saw some mentions of this in passing yesterday, but this morning is the first time I've had the chance to sit down and grok what's happening. I am very excited about several of the authors/works that are now in the public domain, and I haven't yet even done a deep dive.

I do believe I shall download some new things to sideload onto my eReader, today. Thank you for the info and the linking!
