Available Texts

This is intended to be an index of all LDS books available on Project Gutenberg. As we produce blog posts offering a bit of explanation and commentary about a given work, they’ll be referenced here.

A zip containing many of these books (precisely, MTP’s output up to Mar. 16, 2014) is also available, here: – Kindle format, Epub format.

For help on how to use these books (including some software and hardware recommendations), see our How-Tos.

The Church makes e-books of current Church publications (conference, manuals, etc.) available here.

The Maxwell Institute offers WordCruncher, a study software that uses a proprietary e-book format and offers a variety of public domain content, including early Church periodicals and a few other things MTP hasn’t yet got up on Project Gutenberg. (They’ve kindly offered us access to their content and vice versa.)

Archive.org has PDF scans and OCR text of many early Mormon works; it’s the source of the scans used to produce most of MTP’s e-books.
