I am a proofreader for Distributed Proofreaders who are responsible for proofreading and correcting all texts for Project Gutenberg. Project Gutenberg is a venture to take printed out-of-copyright books and make them available to all, free of charge, in a variety of electronic formats. This project works on an entirely voluntary basis.
I have worked on a wide variety of books for Project Gutenberg, covering the categories of: general fiction, historical fiction, humour, autobiography, travel, cookery, history, technology, adventure, juvenile and art.
Although I have been proofreading for a relatively short time, my work experience as an accountant has given me an eye for detail and a love of accuracy. I am also an avid reader with a great love of books.
I am conscientious, focused and used to working to deadlines.
