Interesting Internet Finds – WE May 16, 2014

I publish Interesting Internet Finds monthly in the Boca Raton Computer Society’s Boca Bits monthly newsletter, and share them through APCUG‘s PUSH program  with other computer/technology user group newsletter editors.

Each month, I find many more things than I can use, so have decided to start publishing some of those that were not used for the newsletter on this blog most Fridays.

I do not go into much depth about each one, I just put them out there for you to check out yourself.

Titles, Links, Short Description

Read Free eBooks Online or Save Them To PC As PDF, Txt, ePub
A post about using Smashwords to get, read, and save ebooks (free and paid).

Smashwords is a huge library of eBooks and you can use it completely free without any sign up process. However, if you sign up with Smashwords, you can keep important books to your library for later use and quick access. Moreover, you can even publish your own books to Smashwords after signing up. Thus, it’s a handy service for publishers and other users as well.

I have not necessarily checked each link or process out, but if listed I have used the site enough to trust them.
