Another Source of Free eBooks!

I look forward to my daily emails from Kim Komando. If you don’t know who Kim Komando is, please “click here” to find out! Today she posted a link to the “Hundred Zeros” website. I‘ve been bouncing around this site for at least an hour now! They’ve got hundred of free ebooks for the Kindle.

I suggest you give Hundred Zeros a try. I’ve been a fan of free ebooks for ages now. I don’t know why I missed this website! Enjoy! And thanks Kim!

College Textbooks and eBooks

My daughter just graduated from high school and started college. I’m very proud of her! She finished her first two college classes over the summer and now she’s taking four more classes. I went with her to the campus book store to help pay for the books she needed and Wow! I’m still feeling the price shock! Her biology book was over three hundred dollars and the workbook was another seventy-five!

We found the same book on Craigslist for $50, and the workbook was included! This was a great deal, but I’ve never felt comfortable buying on Craigslist. You never know who you’re going to meet when you make the purchase!

With this in mind, I felt compelled to start writing on this blog again. But instead of writing about eBooks, iPads and Nooks, I’m going to focus on college textbooks. We’ll cover such things as where to find the best prices, advantages of buying versus renting, and comparisons of companies in the business.

If I come across something in the ebook genre that’s interesting, I’ll pass it on to you as well.
