Update about us

I guess the world is too much with us, so you are not going to find many blogs on this site at this time.  Eventually the plan is to rework it and make it more personable and interesting.  In the mean time, we hope you are finding the selected scoops from our Scoop.It curation, Individual and Special Needs Examiner, of interest.  We tend to hold off on the specifically school/teacher/student directed articles, choosing to send some of those out on twitter , @ Themic Partners.  If that’s an area of interest, take a look.  Until we are able to get more deeply involved in the day to day, we’ll keep the scoops coming.  Hope you enjoy them.


Comprehensive List of Free e-Book Websites for your e-Reader

If you own an e-reader you often can only buy e-books from the bookstore that is bundled on your device. Many of the budget e-readers out there don’t even have a bookstore that is accessible by users and many people are left to fend for themselves to load content on it.

Here is a comprehensive free e-book resource catalog online. All of these books are hardware agnostic, which means they are not locked by DRM (Digital Rights Management). All you have to do is simply download a title and load in via the USB cable from your computer to your e-reader. Many of these sites also provide the books in more than one format, so they will work with your Amazon Kindle, Kobo, Barnes and Noble Nook, Sony e-reader and hundreds of others.
