lesbian-ebooks is taking a break for a period while we contemplate our purpose.

This has been a great project! We'd sincerely like to thank our authors for their hard work - we couldn't have done it without you. We'd also like to give a great big thanks to all our readers - at last count, nearly 250 thousand downloads. Fantastic!

An archive of this site may be available shortly - in the mean time we can be contacted via:
