On this page, I store some electronic books which I have created from different sources. The selection of books is casual. I remember the time when I prefered to read printed books and used electronic versions only when hard copies were not available. However, today I'm totally charmed by the freedom that a pocket e-book reader gives to me.

I found some of the books in the Internet as texts, and then composed PDF-files from them. For this, I used the LaTeX publishing system. After work with LaTeX, I couldn't read texts of non-polygraphic quality (not looking "as a real book"), that's why I did this. Besides, I corrected a lot of text recognition mistakes while reading. Since I have started reading books in the FB2 format, I'm not likely to continue this work.

The other books are scanned by me and then transformed to the DJVU format. (Here is a free program for reading DJVU-files.)

Finally, I downloaded some books from the internet in the DJVU format, but for comfort reading I had to remove all the artifacts of scanning and then recompose a DJVU-file again, adding the text recognition as well.
