Biblioklept posts short stories, poems, essays, and excerpts from many authors (mostly in the public domain, but sometimes not).
Biblioklept also posts pretty pictures (and pictures that aren’t so pretty, perhaps).

The Cookbook and Home Economics Collection includes books from the Young Research Library Department of Special Collections at UCLA, The Bancroft Library at The University of California, Berkeley, and the Prelinger Library. These fascinating books take us back to an America in the early decades of the 20th century covering topics on cookery, textiles, family and home, budgeting, domestic sciences, and many other delightful topics.

is the largest library in the world, with millions of #books, recordings, photographs, newspapers, maps and manuscripts in its collections.
This project aims to contribute to the preservation and libration of human knowledge. We make our small and humble contribution, in the footsteps of the greats before us.
The focus of this project is illustrated by its name:
Pirate - We deliberately violate the copyright law in most countries. This allows us to do something that legal entities cannot do: making sure books are mirrored far and wide.
Library - Like most libraries, we focus primarily on written materials like #books. We might expand into other types of #media in the future.
Mirror - We are strictly a mirror of existing libraries. We focus on preservation, not on making books easily searchable and downloadable (access) or fostering a big community of people who contribute new books (sourcing).
