|Websites for people who like books...|
|A friend at work emailed me a link to the Librivox.org site as a good place to download free audiobooks. I had already stumbled onto the site in my quest for a place to donate readings, but it got me thinking about some other book-related websites I've used.|
The Internet Archive has some free recordings, including audio books. Oh, and Telltale Weekly has some free speeches, poems, and such, and has an interesting payment model for their non-free stuff.
Have I written about DailyLit.com? They send you a short section of a (public domain) book every day through email, or you can read it through an RSS feed. Since I get my email on my phone, I find it very convenient to read a short part of a book each day whenever I have a little bit of downtime. So far I've read Flatland, The Time Machine, and Journey to the Center of the Earth. I'm pretty sure it would have been decades before I got around to reading those books the traditional way.
Lastly, LibraryElf.com is a great service for sending reminder emails when your library books are due or a hold is available. It's saved me a couple of times from having grossly overdue books...
