Launched in 2007, Girlebooks aims to make classic and lesser-known works by female writers available to a large audience through the ebook medium. It is the work of Laura McDonald with the help of her mom, Joyce McDonald, and several contributing bloggers. The ebook catalog is made up of primarily free ebooks with the addition of some premium ebooks such as compilations, illustrated ebooks, and most recently original works by contemporary authors. Each ebook is hand made, a cover is created, and it is published into a variety of ebook formats to accommodate most ebook reading devices.
