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!

Hello everyone! I’m so appreciative of all my loyal readers! I haven’t made a real post on this site since December and I’m still averaging over a hundred readers a day! Amazing!
I was looking through The eBook Directory and was surprised how much it has grown! They’ve got something for everybody! Grab a cup of coffee and check it out!
Another place worth looking at is the Khan Academy website. They’ve got free courses in math, science, finance, humanities, test preparation, and more. The math courses start at single digit addition and go all the way through advanced calculus. Their goal is to offer, “A free world-class education for anyone anywhere.”
Here’s a link to an article that’s just fun to read… Check out The Motley Crew’s page entitled, “100 Mind-Blowing Facts About the Economy.” I’m sure you’ll enjoy it! Please “click here” to go there!

We’ve blogged about Nooks, Kindles, and Kobos, and while they’re all great products, what if you just want to read a book on your computer? It’s true you can download apps from Amazon and Barnes & Noble that will allow you to do this, but I found another program that works great and has some amazing features!
I invite you to check out MartView, a digital reader that allows you to “Read on a computer like never before. Flip, slide, scroll, pinch, circle and more!” I’ve been using it for a few weeks now and I really enjoy it. I have a growing collection of books in PDF format. Reading them with Adobe Reader is okay, but MartView really brings a PDF to life!
MartView also offers a library of free books and magazines you can download and read at your leisure. The colors are crisp and clear. This absolutely free program is also enabled for touch screen monitors.
A unique feature of MartView is it will allow you to convert your pictures into an attractive photo album and publish them on the web! I really like this feature!
You can learn more or download MartView by “clicking here.” Have fun!
A friend of mine owns a Kindle. He wanted to know why some eBooks he downloaded wouldn’t open. The Kindle family of eReaders use AZW or MOBI format, and they’re about the only ones that do (please “click here” to see a comparison chart of the top 10 eReaders). The majority of eReaders use EPUB format. The eBooks my friend downloaded were all in EPUB format and weren’t compatible with his Kindle (just like AZW and MOBI formats aren’t compatible with a most other eReaders, including the Nook).
So what do you do when you see an eBook you want to read, but it’s in the wrong format for your eReader? That’s easy! You convert the eBook’s format to one you can use! You can do that quickly and easily with Calibre!
So what is Calibre? I’ll let them tell you… “Calibre allows you to organize your e-book collection, convert e-books to various formats, and interact with your e-book reader, all in an intuitive and friendly manner.” Please “click here” to visit their website and learn more about what they have to offer! The best thing is Calibre is FREE!
Calibre is a great eReader too! You can read eBooks in all formats, highlight text, and add sticky notes. Check them out! I’ve been using Calibre and I love it!
