free book and crossword puzzle resources

Below you will find some links to help you access free audio, e-book and other electronic reading and learning resources. As I am crazy for crosswords puzzles and a firm believer that they help keep the brain sharp I am including a link for those too.

Please consider sharing the love in as many of these ways as you can:

  • Purchase a new book as a gift for someone or for yourself if and when you can afford to do so. This helps keep authors afloat financially.
  • Share free books resources far and wide all the time. Everyone deserves to read.
  • Ask your local library to stock hard copies of the books of your favorite authors. This helps get these books out to a greater audience. It also helps those authors who reside in your country.  Public Lending Rights payments help us eat and pay our bills 😉
