Project Gutenberg reached it's 6,000th eBook.

Project Gutenberg of Australia reached it's 100th eBook.
PGofOz was started in August 2001 by Colin Choat, so it has taken
just over a year to create their first 100 eBooks. [It took the
first Project Gutenberg about 23 years to reach 100.]
Don Lainson has contributed 30 ebooks to PGofOz as well as many to PG.
He lives in Canada. Sue Asscher of Australia has also been quite involved.
Our HUGE congratulations and thanks to each and every PGofOz volunteer!!!
