First scanned: Noodlot by Couperus
Noodlot, by Louis Couperus (etext #17659), is the first book at Project Gutenberg that I have scanned. The title means “fate”, “destiny”. I have helped produce a lot of books for PG, hundreds probably, but this is the first one that I actually bought in a store or on a market, that I held in my hands, and that has now been digitized completely, so it is a little bit special for me.
I haven’t actually read it, though, so I cannot tell you what it is about. PG has Plain Vanilla Text (PVT) and HTML versions, and undoubtedly websites like Manybooks will have … drats! that’s fast … has it in many more formats.
