Top 100 Authors by Project Gutenberg

Top 100 Authors last 30 days – Project Gutenberg

To determine the rankings of the top 100 authors for the last 30 days, Project Gutenberg counts the times each file (by author) gets downloaded.

In addition, Project Gutenberg Informs:

Both HTTP and FTP transfers are counted. Only transfers from ibiblio.org are counted as we have no access to our mirrors log files. Multiple downloads from the same IP address on the same day count as one download. IP addresses that download more than 100 files a day are considered robots and are not considered. Books made out of multiple files like most audio books are counted if any file is downloaded.

NOTE: Check back every once in a while as these top listing changes regularly based on the calculation mentioned above.
