Book Links

I said earlier that I would post a list of my favorite book links, so here they are.  I'm sure that my list on the inspirations will eventually end up much longer than this when I do finally add it there.  Does anyone else have any favorite book links that you'd like to share.  

Librarything - A site to catalog the books that you read.  You can catalog up to 200 books a year for free.  It's only $25 for a life time account, though, which isn't bad either.   It's a good way to keep up with what you've read and to make a list of books that you want to read in the future.

Amazon.com - A site for ordering books (as well as just about everything else) that mostly everyone knows about already.  If you are a student, I would advise signing up for student prime which allows you to get free shipping and costs nothing.  I'm not certain if you can sign up now, but be on the watch before school starts back again in August. 

DailyLit - If you like free books, and I can't think of anyone who doesn't, then you might enjoy DailyLit. You can receive installments each day of books in your email, and you don't even have to register in order to do so.  I, in fact, have registered because you can create a booklist of what you would like to receive next once you've finished your current book.  I'm currently receiving Jane Austen: Her Life and Letters.   My second pick, when I finally finish that one is Authors in the Kitchen.

Project Gutenberg - I've already talked about this one before in my post One of my favorite book sources.  Project Gutenberg has over 33,000 free e-books that you can download to read or read online.  You can read them on your computer or whatever e-reader you happen to have.  The books available are all books whose copyright in the US has expired allowing them to be available for free to the public.  This means that you won't find contemporary books at this site.  However, you will find all of the classics.  In addition, the site also has some books available different languages as well as audio downloads.
