A fun side-project that I often pick up is generation of semantically correct EPUB/MOBI/PDF files from various online books and content. This is a short list:

Chapters 0-32 from Oathbringer, Book 3 in the Stormlight Archive, being published by Tor in serialized format. (ongoing)
Way of Kings Reread
Tor’s re-read of Way of kings, Book 1 in the Stormlight Archive.
Words of Radiance Reread
Tor re-read of Words of Radiance, Book 2 in the Stormlight Archive.
Oathbringer Reread
Tor re-read of Oathbringer, Book 3 in the Stormlight Archive.
Edgedancer Reread
Tor re-read of Edgedancer, a novella between Books 2 & 3 in the Stormlight Archive.
Way of Kings Prime
Brandaon Sanderson published a few chapters from the earliest draft of Way of Kings (2002, while the book was published almost a decade later).
Tor’s serialized publication of Hoshruba-The Land and the Tilism.
Magic Muggle
Harry Potter fan-fiction about a muggle going to Hogwarts. (3rd book ongoing abandoned)
Site Reliability Engineering
Google’s book on Site Reliability Engineering. Published by Google as a online read under CC BY-NC-ND 4.0
The Site Reliability Workbook
The Site Reliability Workbook is the hands-on companion to the bestselling Site Reliability Engineering book and uses concrete examples to show how to put SRE principles and practices to work. Published by Google as a online read under CC BY-NC-ND 4.0.

Things next on my list:

I only provide the scripts for the generation on GitHub. If you’d like a copy without having to run the script, get in touch and ask.

As a side-effect, I often get into the rabbit hole of generating the perfect EPUB instead of actually reading them.
