Default Project Gutenberg DVDs

Would anyone mind downloading the Project Gutenberg torrent of the 17,000 free books on their site and sending it to me? I'm on dial-up so it's too big for me to get myself and I'd really like to have the books...

http://www.gutenberg.org/cdproject/p...06.iso.torrent

If you don't know what Project Gutenburg is...
http://www.gutenberg.org/wiki/Main_Page

I'd be willing to pay for shipping...I'm planning to make 100 or so copies if I last that long (lol) to distribute around the library and stuff and of course one for myself...I'm one of those weird book freaks.

I will.
Might take a little while being that It's so massive.
I have it downloading now.
Will contact you via MSN or PM for shipping arrangements.

Who knew Steve Gutenberg was so into reading? I just figured he was in to hanging out and banging chicks. You learn something new every day...
