'The Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue' which given my recent spate of expletive exploitation was an immediate draw! The Book Depository has many free ebooks (over 11,000 in fact if their home page is to be believed) so it may well be worth a browse before once more reaching for the credit card and logging on to Abe or Amazon! You get a lot of the classics, which are well out of their copyright so any old shyster can publish a version, but a word of caution; sometimes these copies are not edited thoroughly, or contain errors - so always try to read a reputable edition! (Did you hear my teacherly tone there?)
So if like me you want a dose of the EebieFreebies then here are some links to sites which may have a free version just for your delectation ...
Get Free Books
Project Guttenberg ( a must for scholars)
Completely Novel (which is also a community for writers and is largely about new work)
The list isn't exhaustive but it should provide plenty of choice!
And just a final "heads up" to any stationery fetishists out there ...
THE PAPERIE HAS A SALE ON BUT IT ENDS TODAY!!!! So stock up on your new term notebooks and stationery now while prices are still low!
Right now it is back to the grindstone for me ...
