    Free eBooks

    So I was looking for a book online the other day and learned about an awesome new (ok, new to me) concept, eBooks! What a great idea, doesn't clutter up the house and no trips to the library necessary.

    I also saw that there are options for FREE eBooks as well! I went to Barnes and Noble and saw that they have lots of free titles available. I even found a specific book I was looking for as a free eBook! Here's the link for Barnes and Noble's eBook reader and more info: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/ebooks/how-it-works.asp?cds2Pid=29168&linkid=1564100

    Our state has a digital library, and I'm assuming other states do too; we're not usually on the cutting edge of things, lol.  I recently used it and was really surprised at the huge array of things available. Thousands of e books and audiobooks, as well as music cd's and some movies.  You check the items out for a week or two, just like at the regular library, and can reserve things that are not currently available (I guess they have a limited number of licensing keys for each item).  I'm a huge fan of audio books, so that's what I mainly focused on.  I like to download them to my iPod and listen while driving, doing housework and crafts, etc.  Check it out if you haven't already.

    I just recently bought my own Nook. I love it! Not only is it a great alternative to buying/storing books, it's a great alternative for those that need large print and have trouble holding those big heavy books. Yeah, speaking from personal experience.

    Did anyone mention this site yet? If not, you really need to look at it. It has tons of free ebooks and you can also read the books on line. Simple to download into your Nook/Kindle! Some really great "old time" recipe books, etc. http://www.gutenberg.org/
