I'm not expressing any opinions on the subject of Feminism with this post, so my usual message about reading the About Me page didn't seem needed.  However, if you're just DYING to read it anyway, you can click here.

I was watching a video news article on Yahoo! the other day, about getting the Kindle Reader for your pc, if you didn't own a Kindle, but wanted to take advantage of reading books available at Amazon for the Kindle.  I happened to check into the free books they had to offer, which was a very minimal listing.  Then I scrolled down the page, and found a few links for other sites that offered free books.  I checked out the first one, which was called Internet Archive, and it's got some nice stuff on there, and I'm sure it's a great service.  The one that really won over my heart, though, was Open Library.

I adore reading books, though most of my life I've chosen to stick to fiction.  However, since my endeavor to get to the roots of femininity and feminism, I've chosen to add more non-fiction to my habit.  What I truly love about this site, is that while you can download any book as a text document in various forms to read, you can also click a link for each book that says Read It Online.  I just happened to click that for one of the books I had selected, and when it loaded up, it was the actual book.  These people have taken the time to actually scan the pages of these books and make them available for you to read.  I love the way a book looks when you hold it, and how the pages look with the text printed on them.  Well, at this site, you really can read the 'books', and not just a text document.  Just remember that when you're doing your search, don't forget to check the box underneath the search bar that says 'only show ebooks'.  I just wanted to share this with all of you, because it's always nice to share a gift that you've received with others.

That is all for now, my lovelies.
