Questia Online Library

I'm happy to announce that I have a new affiliate on my blog. It is Questia Online Library. This is a very interesting web site if you're interested in research material or just reading. They have over 1.5 million articles and 65,000 books. Much of the material is from academic presses which is usually very expensive to purchase on the market. New it can range anywhere from $20 a paperback to $150! so being able to get access to much the same material for $19.95/one month or $99/year is an excellent deal.

For researchers there are a bunch of tools that are provided including the ability to highlight passages produce citations and save bookmarks. Unlike most services the text is actual text that can be manipulated most services simply take apart the book and scan the individual pages and just post image files.

They have a free trial so you can test things out. Even before committing to the free trial you can start reading.

From now on I'll occasionally review books listed on the service as well as still providing links to Abebooks when appropriate.

For people who love to read
