Revision as of 21:57, 30 July 2007

A list of Creative Commons-licensed books.

By "book" we generally mean works over 35,000 words that are or have been commercially available in hardcopy and have an ISBN. We've expanded the definition in two added sections below, however, to include the most popular books published through do-it-yourself press Lulu, and "books" published on websites of established organizations or notable blogs.

This is just a start and is woefully incomplete. Please add missing titles and fill in missing information.

How to add a book

This table pulls information from other articles in the wiki which have been created with semantic annotations. To easily add a book, fill in this form or create a new page using the Template:Books
