Free Reading 'Round the Web

Wednesday, December 24, 2008 0 Comments A+ a-

Books can be expensive and hard to get especially if there aren't any libraries or bookstores near you. In these hard economic times it can be the lowest thing on the "need" list even if you are an avid reader looking for a little escape.

Thankfully there are some great resources online with some free current reads and public domain classics including in audio format.

Check out these places gathered from around the web:
