Over the next few days, as people draft their New Year’s Resolutions and 2012 predictions, I’ll be providing tools to help you Achieve Your Resolution – valuable webapps and web sites that I’ve found in the past year that help achieve popular New Year’s Resolutions.
Everyone wants to read more. For fun, and not for school. This is a daunting task when all you’ve got is your school’s bookstore and not so much free time.
The biggest way I’ve found I can enhance my reading is with my e-reader, and the support I’ve had from Amazon.com. As an Amazon Student
member, I can borrow books on my Kindle Fire for free, which helps defray the otherwise high cost of fiction.
But if you like to listen to books while you work out, drive to work, or are just on the go, Audible.com
is second to none when it comes to audiobooks. They have the largest selection and the best deals to get your reading done…with your ears.
And finally, Project Gutenberg
has over 36,000 free e-books, mainly classics, that are available to be read on your Nook, Kindle, and on your computer. And yes, the Kama Sutra’s there, as well as some of the great works of Dickens and Lewis Caroll.
Get reading – whether it’s on your e-reader, through your earbuds, or in the classical world – in 2012.
