And The Big Question Is…..

What happens when you read the last ebook on hand and unable to access the Internet?

Very simple. Read some of the *free* books available through Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com. There are other websites too but those are the two main sites I look for when searching for something different.

Remember:
Some are cheesy.
Some are not worth your time.

But once in awhile there will be that diamond in the rough that makes you want to read more from that very author.
