Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.

eBooks & AudioBooks

I'll continue skipping around until the end (which is very close!)...

I have been aware of Project Gutenberg for many years, and use it occasionally. World eBook Fair was a slight disappointment - looks like it is only free once a year. Granted, the $8.95 membership fee is not much, but it is not free!

LibriVox was much more interesting - it has about 800 titles and would be a good resource for high school and older to listen to, rather than read, a book.

The most intriguing find was Wikibooks. According to their site, it is, "a free collection of open-content textbooks that anyone can edit". What a world of information out there! Always, more than I had imagined.
