I bought a Kindle especially for my 19th century hobby. There are so many century texts to be found on Gutenberg! I only read material that was written in Victorian England, otherwise it gets too overwhelming.

When I read books on archive.org, I frequently sort the search results by "date added", so that the items I haven't already seen are up at the top. Is there anyway to do something similar with google books? (Yes, I have rather specific research interests)

If anyone wants to help with the digitisation, there's a volunteer site at Distributed Proofreaders, www.pgdp.netIt's organised so that the proofing and formatting is done one page at a time, so if you don't have much time you can just do one page per day. A lot of the stuff that goes up is 19th century, but there's some older stuff too; I'm looking forward to the Discoverie of Witchcraft, 1584, going onto Project Gutenberg soon!
