I do a lot of reading while on my travels. Beats watching the boob tube most of the time, and in some places (like where I am now) there's no OTA television signal available.
A couple months ago I rediscovered Project Guttenberg ( Free ebooks by Project Gutenberg - Gutenberg
) and have downloaded a LOT of books for free. I save them to my Macbook in Epub format, plus I downloaded an Epub reader add-on for Firefox ( https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...on/epubreader/
If you're not familiar with Project Guttenberg, it's a freely accessed collection of older copyright-expired books. There are many, many classics, lots of old sci-fi, and lots of just plain old fun reads. I've recently read a half-dozen books in the Tarzan series, E. R. Burroughs- I always thought "Tarzan" was a just single book, and not a whole series. Now I'm reading Great Expectations, Charles Dickens.
I'm sure a lot of you are aware of Guttenberg, but for those readers (and wanna-be readers) that aren't, this could come in handy for those rainy, dreary, windy, dusty days. Enjoy.
