Complete Project Gutenberg Catalog in JSON

Project Gutenberg is an amazing site containing over 57,000 free ebooks at the time of this writing.



Recently I've been working on a project to create a database of book bibliographies. A database of book references from within other books. You'd be able to answer the query: Show me all the books that reference "Thinking Fast and Slow". I plan to use Project Gutenberg as the repository that I use to create the first version of this database.

Project Gutenberg currently makes their complete project catalog available as a collection of RDF files found here: http://www.gutenberg.org/wiki/Gutenberg:Feeds

RDF is not something I've worked with in the past, so I converted them to JSON files. You can download that set of files from here:

https://sfp.blob.core.windows.net/public/gutenberg_catalog.zip


Hope this helps,
Aaron

Hi Aaron - I want to do this, but with the more recent RDF files ... any tips on how? Did you use python? Any tips appreciated. From Edward (e+w@edwardwatson.com)
