Feedbooks: New online ebooks site

When I saw it some days back, I bookmarked it & then forgot all about it. Its mention at SF Signal by John yesterday made me finally look at it.

While there are many good books here - both genre & otherwise, almost every time I found something interesting & wanted to download it, it was a repacked file from Project Gutenberg (in one case from (manybooks itself usually repackages PG content)).

But Feedbooks adds value, like manybooks, by making few basic formats of PG available in many more readily usable formats - so it may still be worth a look.

Feedbooks seems to be manually converting PG books to specific formats rather than doing it automatically online; so there are far fewer entries than at PG.
