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.

Lulu Highlights

Lulu offers a publishing service for “digital do-it-yourselfers” to publish all manner of media, including books. Lulu lets 
creators set the license terms, including Creative Commons licenses, for their works as part of the publishing process. We've 
chosen to list some popular CC-licensed works that have been published through Lulu, below.

"Books" online

These are "books" (ie works of 35,000 words or more) made available through established organizations and sites. These are not to include vanity projects by your favorite uncle.
