I have followed and enjoyed the work of Project Gutenberg since the early to mid-nineties. I have always wanted to participate somehow, but always worried about taking on too much and letting down the project if I didn't pull my weight, or if my interest should wane. Maybe up until a few years ago, that might have been a reasonable excuse, but not anymore.
People that want to help out can benefit from the synergy created by distributed proofreading. Participants can do as little or as much as they desire. I recently started proofing for pgdp.net and find it relaxing and enjoyable. Even if I just do one page a day, I know that I'm contributing to something lasting worth.
