New Zealand gets its first 1000 ebooks free (including The Edmonds Cookbook!)

ActivityPress says that "while commercial publishers work on their project to bring 1000 Great New Zealand ebooks to market, the New Zealand Electronic Text Centre (NZETC) has been quietly working to convert its collection to free downloadable ebooks — 1150 of them available right now." Works include "The ‘Sure to Rise’ Cookery Book, third edition, 1914 (the Edmonds Cookbook that your great Gran used), The Garden Party by Katherine Mansfield, The Maori Volumes I and II by Elsdon Best, The Life of Captain James Cook by J C Beaglehole, My Life by Jean Batten, The Story of a New Zealand River by Jane Mander, Man Alone by John Mulgan, The Godwits Fly by Robin Hyde, and The New Zealanders at Gallipoli by Colonel Fred Waite"
