Top 100 Free Gutenberg Books

This is an interesting list to review. (Thanks Blake)
Project Gutenberg lists the top 100 free e-book downloads in these categories:
Top 100 EBooks yesterday
Top 100 Authors yesterday
Top 100 EBooks last 7 days
Top 100 Authors last 7 days
Top 100 EBooks last 30 days
Top 100 Authors last 30 days
I can imagine a few uses for these lists.
1. Are they reflective of our collections? I was surprised at the titles.
2. Are they classics in the usual defintion of the term?
3. Should they be catalogued and added to our OPAC’s for additional discovery by our users?
4. Is there some use for this as a promotional tool for e-books?
