Wow -- io, Free Books!

A member of one of the yahoo homeschool groups I'm on share a link and I need to share, too. Wowio, free books, free minds.

It's a website that allows you to download free books. There are some great books available, especially for kiddos. You may only download five books a day. So far I've got ten. I don't know what I'll get today, but I'm extremely happy with what we've got so far:

Great Ancient Egypt Projects You Can Build Yourself
Great Civil War Projects You Can Build Yourself
Great World War II Projects You Can Build Yourself
Tools of the Ancient Greeks: A Kid's Guide to the History and Science of Life in Ancient Greece
Tools of Native Americans: a Kid's Guide to the History and Culture of the First Americans
Amazing Leonardo da Vinci Inventions You Can Build Yourself
Great Colonial America Projects You Can Build Yourself
Tools of the Ancient Romans: A Kid's Guide to the History and Science of Life in Ancient Rome
Tools of Navigation: A Kid's Guide to the History and Science of Finding Your Way
Tools of Timekeeping: A Kid's Guide to the History and Science of Telling Time

Pretty cool, eh?

There aren't too many other children's books that I'm interested in, but the above list was a gold mine for me! I'm off to search for something for me now.

They also have this special deal that if you get ten people to sign up, you get a free ipod shuffle. (I don't even know what an ipod shuffle is!!!) I'm not really interested in that for me (maybe I should be) but just thought I'd throw that out there.

If you get ten friends to join, you MIGHT get an iPod Whatever-it-is. I think it's a drawing or something. I think I'll pass on the spamming my friends stuff.

This is a great find though! Thanks for sharing it!

See -- I guess I didn't care enough to read that far. lol

I did google it to learn what it was, though.

Gee, I thought you'd turned me on to a gold mine, but it turns out that you have to be in the US and it blocks my Canadian IP from joining.

Oh well, still a great idea.
