World e-book fair...

There was a recent piece about the World eBook Fair in Information Today. The theme of this year's fair is "Own your own library" and more than 1.2 million e-books will be offered for free download by the participating organizations. The event runs from July 4th through August 4th from 2006 through 2009. This particular article has a number of good links to other online resources for free e-books. For stores that like to provide content to students for free, or are working on initiatives like faculty editions of classics, POD content, or other projects, these links could be useful.

Time to go load up my e-reader before my flight...
