Looking for e-Books/e-Docs (and Happy New Year to all)
« on: December 26, 2009, 01:45:43 PM »
Hello all,

I am looking for information about where I can get ebooks (edocs) that I can read on my computer. If anyone knows anything about where they can be obtained or resources in this area, I would really appreciate it if people would be share any/all information about what they know.

In addition to information about where I can obtain e-books, I would also appreciate any information people know about software that will read text aloud, including ebooks and web pages.

Thanks so much & again, a joyous (and financially good) New Year to you all!

Here's a couple of links I like:

Free public domain e-books: http://manybooks.net

Free audio books: http://librivox.org

LearnOutLoud has audiobooks for sale, but they also do free releases of commercial titles every few weeks. You may have to subscribe to their newsletter to get the links, but IMHO it's worth it. www.learnoutloud.com. Nice podacasts too.
