Baen Free Library

Thought I'd mention one of my favorite websites, the Baen Free Library. Baen is a big publisher in the science fiction & fantasy genres. The website has entire novels by a large number of authors available as free e-reader downloads. The site is also set up so that a visitor can read complete texts while online. It is updated fairly regularly & has quite a wide variety of choices.

Personally, this has encouraged me to spend money on Baen authors whom I might not otherwise have read. I really like to read an author's backlist if I can find it- does this offset money lost by offering free downloads? I've no idea, but IMO, this creates a type of brand loyalty that creates a 'good vibe' among readers.

Bought myself a new cell phone yesterday- & then spent all my free time (HA, as if there's a lot of that) hunting for wallpaper & screensavers & ringtones. Yes I'm a geek at heart. The phone was actually supposed to be for hubby, but it has a color screen & is polyphonic ringtone capable &.....It's mine now. I had a two year old phone which is physically smaller, but with fewer bells & whistles. This is my problem, I like bells & whistles &, as mentioned before, have serious issues with waiting for something I want.

Have a good weekend, everyone!

Amanda, the internet has really shrunk the size of the world, making it so much easier for us to share information. In all the tons of stuff in cyberland, I recently found your site. While I was really out searching for information on free screensavers online , your site providing good info on this post which is very interesting. Again, seeing how small the world is now and how interesting your site is, one can understand why your site was found even while I was looking for free screensavers online related information. Good job.
