Tech Fun- Thursday

The semester is winding down and the cooler weather looks like it will be here to stay. During your time off between semesters, you might be looking for a few fun things to do online. Today, I'll be making some recommendations of my favorite "free" web "time waster sites).

First, if you don't feel like going to the library and don't want to spend any of your hard earned money on books for yourself, check out Wowio. This site allows you to download free pdf book files to read on your computer or print out and read offline. Registration is easy and the selection is growing daily. Books range from classic literature (might save on textbook bills!) to fun and games such as logic puzzles and more.

Second, if you're traveling and stuck somewhere with nothing to do, you might want to check out this site. 13 Places to Watch TV for free. Some of the sites have some very unusual shows and some of the recommendations are those most people already know such as going to one of the major network sites to watch an episode of your favorite nightly program. No registration required.

Third, need to know how to do something quickly (bake a pie, cook a turkey, become a teacher's pet!), Ehow has all that and more. Using a user rating system for the items, you can also see if other people found the instructions helpful or not. The site is broken down into broad categories and then more specific categories. Registration is free and allows users to post to the message board and more.

Happy Surfing!
