“Thursday’s Things” is a roundup of book-related links I’ve come across while wandering down the rabbit hole that is the internet.
I’m on a book buying ban for the next month or so. The Boyfriend and I might be moving to San Fransisco, and if we do, the square footage of where we end up living is bound to be tiny in comparison to our current apartment. So, not only do I need to save money for moving expenses, but I need to save as much precious physical space as possible. However, no one said I can’t “shop” for ebooks without spending any money! Here is a list of 10 places we can all get our fix for free:
- The Online Books Page – There are over 2 million free books on this website, thanks to the University of Pennsylvania.
- Read Print – Here are a few thousand more.
- The Baen Free Library – and here are even more.
- Bookyards – …and some more.
- International Children’s Digital Library – Looking for free kid’s books? Here ya go.
- Storyline Online – How about famous actors reading children’s books aloud? There are tons of videos on this non-profit site.
- Library of Congress – Of course there’s always the Digital Collection of the Library of Congress.
