Global Grey is a one-woman operation that has been running for over ten years. I format every single e-book myself, as well as maintaining the website. This is a passion project that was born from a love for reading and a commitment to make free e-books that look good and feel enjoyable to read.

I use sources such as Project Gutenberg, Archive.org, and sometimes my own book collections. These texts serve as a foundation, and then public domain artwork is added to create a cover. Next comes editing and formatting for digital devices - either PDF, epub, or Kindle format. And voila, the process is complete.

Look around and start exploring. I hope you have fun finding your next favourite read!
