Good afternoon dear gentle readers! This weekend here in Canada is a long three day one as it is our Thanksgiving Day celebration on Monday. I have been spending this first day catching up on my web surfing, and reading as it has been rather dull, and rainy outside.

As Matthew spent time sailing the dreaded virtual seven seas in a robust game of PC Pirates, I have been checking out Questia, which for those of you who may need an introduction to this service is the leading online academic library for both students, and educators in my own humble opinion.

Over 5,000 FREE Books are currently available through the Questia website, and all you have to do to check them out is click on one of the links I've added into this entry or on the logo above. I was truly impressed with the diversity, and quality of titles available, again at zero cost!

A subscription to this service, which is available either monthly or annually will give you access to over 70,000 digital books and 1.7 million articles that are easily searchable. I have found the website to be over all very user friendly, and well laid out. Questia is a pleasure to surf through, and conduct research from!

For you history geeks out there they are also offering a free subscription to a trial set of books including early American history.

Questia would have definitely been a huge benefit to myself as a student, and I intend to utilise it within my own research pursuits both for this blog, and for my other writing assignments. :D

My thanks to our sponsor.
