Japanese Project Gutenberg

I am now on page 375 of Moby Dick.

Check out this post over at the Tofugu blog about how to download Japanese books for free. Just as Project Gutenberg has put English-language books in the public domain online for anyone to have access to, so has Aozora Bunko, or Blue Sky Library, made Japanese classics available. They are also active in lobbying for more Japanese texts to be put in the public domain.

If you read Japanese literature (in Japanese), you won't want to miss this.
