Complete “Cape Cod” by Henry David Thoreau and Two Other ‘Must-See’ Web Sites

Hi…

Ok, so you want to read the entire “Cape Cod” work by Henry David Thoreau… Just click to the pic on the left, and there you go… In general this is just one of the collection of free books from Project Gutenberg — an attempt to push into public domain all non-copyrighted literature… there are roughly 33,000 publications available for the PC, iPad, Kindle, Sony Reader, iPhone, Android and other portable devices. But that ain’t the only cool site on the Web…

Check out “Freecycle” — a depository of all things still good, but “in the way”. If you have a corner hutch that doesn’t fit the new living room, Freecycle it and give it to someone who needs one. (Like you need yet another humongous object clogging the garage!) If, on the other hand, you need an old, working 8-track player for your BTO collection, speak up! Somebody out there might have just what you’re looking for… Pretty much, the rules are that stuff has to be of some honest value (typically usable ‘as-is’), and there’s no “Plundering for eBay…”

Finally, there is the Cornell Ornithology Department… If you want to know all things birds, go to Cornell…
