Holybooks.com turns 10! Ten years ago, in may 2010, I posted the first book here on holybooks.com. It has been some great years and I the work has put me in contact with so many people all over the world. Thanks to all of you for your support, suggestions, follows and shares on social media, discussions, donations, referrals and most of all: for sharing my interest in these priceless works.
When the site started I had no idea where it would go. At the time I was meditating a lot and during a long meditation, suddenly, out of nowhere, the idea struck me: Build a website with important, Public Domain books, name it holybooks.com. I stopped the meditation, went online, bought the domain and the next day the first book was posted.
Since then more than 2.000 books have been posted and more than 10.000 people are visiting the site every day now. The typical user is a male student from India between 25 and 35 accessing the site from his mobile phone. But I can also see from the statistics that users come from as distant places as North Korea (just a handful of pageviews, but still..), Vatican City and event the smallest island kingdoms in the Pacific
Most popular books on the site are:
- The Mahabharata
- The Quran
- The Bible
- Complete works of Swami Vivekananda
- The Voynich Manuscript and CODEX Serahinianus
