In case you missed it, switching.social has a search page for public domain eBooks:

switching.social/public-domain

It uses a custom DuckDuckGo search for ebooks in Gutenberg, Adelaide University, Wikisource, Gutenberg Australia, Gutenberg Canada, Faded Page, Standard eBooks, Runeberg.org, Lonnrot.net and dbnl.org

If you know of any other sources of PD eBooks, especially non-English sources, let me know.

@switchingsocial ebooks.qumran.org/ has ~1.000 English and ~9.000 German eBooks. All for free (either PD, CC-BY, or explicit grant by their authors).

@switchingsocial archive.org might have some stuff in it, but fuck if I know

@switchingsocial there is liberliber.it/online/comunicar for books in italian, but they release their files under a non-free license (CC-BY_NC_SA) liberliber.it/online/opere/lib (and not everything that they publish is PD anyway)

@switchingsocial option to not use gutenberg cause they're still scared and

"Your IP Address is Blocked from www.gutenberg.org"
