Dear patrons, Holybooks.com is a library only Public Domain PDF ebooks on spiritual topics. I have collected more than thousand books that can all be downloaded for free. Many people use the site daily and I work hard to post new content. I focus on high quality books and it takes time to clear the Public Domain status and get permission to post the works. Furthermore the high amount of traffic stresses the server, and I have installed a costly CDN-solution (meaning that all books are hosted at a number of servers around the world for faster downloads). 

My dream, and the reason I ask you to help me, is to dedicate more time to the project. I want the site to host 10.000 books, and I want it to be fast as lightning. I want these books to be accessible by everyone with a smartphone all over the world. I need time to convince authors to let me post their books on the site and to contact monasteries  in Nepal and Burma asking for their latest translations and I need time to compress and edit huge scanned works for better readability. 

Coming tasks: 
  • To create schema markup for all books. This will take a months of work but will ensure that the books are arranged and described in a standardized way, so the easily can be found by libraries and search engines. 
  • New design on the site to increase usability
  • More books to be uploaded
  • Engage a programmer to do tweaks and fix a number of bugs
