There are acres of words in this FAQ about that, but it all boils
down to 4 simple steps:
- Get an eligible book--pre-1923, or one of the exceptions. Pull
it from your attic, borrow it from a library or a friend, buy it
in your local bookstore, in a flea-market or on-line. We don't
- Send us a copy or the front and back of the title page so we
can file proof of copyright clearance.
- Copy the text from the book into a computer text file. We don't
care whether you type it, scan it, voice-dictate it, or think of
some totally new way to do it. Just get it into a file.
- Send us the computer text file.
That's all there is to it!
