Send ebooks from Project Gutenberg to Google Drive in just one click
In the middle of December I reported that Project Gutenberg, my favorite site with free public domain ebooks, added a Dropbox integration.
Now users can also send books directly to Google Drive – if this is their preferred cloud storage service. All you have to do is to click on a Google Drive button that you can see next to Dropbox.
When using the Google Drive integration for the first time, you’ll be asked to grant access to your Google account. After that, as I said before, sending a book file to Google Drive is a matter of one click.
Unlike Dropbox, where a special folder is being created, the file will land in a main Google Drive catalog. You may want to move it to a special folder where you store your ebook collection.
One click and done – that’s how I imagine sending books to e-reader or e-reading application. I don’t understand why Amazon can’t do the same.

The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
by Suzanne Collins
Part 1: The Mentor
Coriolanus released the fistful of cabbage into the pot of boiling water and swore that one day it would never pass his lips again. But this was not that day. He needed to eat a large bowl of the anemic stuff, and drink every drop of broth, to prevent his stomach from growling during the reaping ceremony. It was one of a long list of precautions he took to mask the fact that his family, despite residing in the penthouse of the Capitol’s most opulent apartment building, was as poor as district scum. That at eighteen, the heir to the once-great house of Snow had nothing to live on but his wits.
His shirt for the reaping was worrying him. He had an acceptable pair of dark dress pants bought on the black market last year, but the shirt was what people looked at. Fortunately, the Academy provided the uniforms it required for daily use. For today’s ceremony, however, students were instructed to be dressed fashionably but with the solemnity the occasion dictated. Tigris had said to trust her, and he did. Only his cousin’s cleverness with a needle had saved him so far. Still, he couldn’t expect miracles.
The shirt they’d dug from the back of the wardrobe—his father’s, from better days—was stained and yellowed with age, half the buttons missing, a cigarette burn on one cuff. Too damaged to sell in even the worst of times, and this was to be his reaping shirt? This morning he had gone to her room at daybreak, only to find both his cousin and the shirt missing. Not a good sign. Had Tigris given up on the old thing and braved the black market in some last-ditch effort to find him proper clothing? And what on earth would she possess worth trading for it? Only one thing—herself—and the house of Snow had not yet fallen that far. Or was it falling now as he salted the cabbage?
