Henry Winkler(The Fonz) is a children’s book author…Had no Idea. He wrote these books because he has Dyslexia. https://www.allbookstores.com/Henry-Winkler/author
Also find stuff on NASA or Space Exploration, Astronomy and Biology or Flora and Animal life.
Now for the stuff for you. I get a DAILY email from http://www.dailyfreebooks.com/ for Amazon Free eBooks. You can set it up to send you certain categories like “Children’s eBooks”, “Teens/Young Adults” plus you can add what you like too. Sorry to say I think this is ONLY US/CA…even sometimes it’s NOT CA. They only show you 5 books in each category but you can click through to get to the other books in the list. I know I have gotten a ton of books this way but I have NEVER used the Children’s section so YMMV.
From the site:
"Every day we bring you a comprehensive list of free ebooks for download for your Kindle. The list is compiled from ebooks which are promoted free of charge by the author or publisher for that day. The free Kindle ebooks cover a wide range of genres and tastes ranging from reference and educational material to fiction and poetry.
If you choose to subscribe by email, you can look forward to a daily emailer with the very best of the morning’s free ebook releases from genres you select yourself. The free books are updated regularly throughout the day with more and more books being added or removed from the free books listings so please do check regularly and also be vigilant that a free offer has not expired.
If you do not own a Kindle, you can still read the books on your computer, tablet or mobile phone using the free Kindle reader software which you can download from your app store or from the Amazon website.
Please note that the books listed were indicated as being free at the time this email was composed. On rare occasions a book may be withdrawn or the price changed by the author or distributor. Always check the final price shown on Amazon before you download a book."
I have had books not be free by the time I got to them so do pay attention. Not very often but it has happened.
Now to make some kind of order here…
“Calibre can sort the books in your library by title, author, date added, date published, size, rating, or series, along with extra metadata such as tags and personal comments.” Calibre has tags but tags annoy me.
I used to use All My Books which is a paid program.
But someone, recently, told me about Data Crow which is Open source, Free and it manages ALL your MEDIA including GAMES in ONE place. Plus it runs on LINUX!!!
“Data Crow is the ultimate media cataloger and media organiser.
Always wanted to manage all your collections in one product? You want a product you can customize to your needs? Your search ends here! Using Data Crow allows you to catalog all your collectables, no matter how large your collection is. Using the excellent online services, you can instantly retrieve information about your books, software, games and movies. This information, combined with the file import, which can parse information from your e-books, software, images, music and movie files, means you won’t be doing a lot of typing.”
It does it all. If you loan something out, you can monitor it, you can make your own categories…This is the Cat’s Pajamas.
