Digital books for money or for free

I get emails from Logos on a regular basis advertising “new” books that are on their community pricing. I have yet to see a work that was not already available online for free so I figured I would let you in on my little secret. Every time Logos sends me a community pricing advertisement I check online. The latest edition is the 6 Volume William Cowper collectionWilly was an English poet from the 1700’s see his wikipedia entry for fast and possibly loose information about him. 

There are 3 distinct works:

What's the difference? With the Logos edition you get to read it on Logos along with all of their built in resources like dictionaries and searches. With the links provided above you get an extra $35 to spend on Slim Jims. For me the choice is easy.
Cowper says save your dough for the Slim Jims!

Geo Camping

Sam Crook, Kevin Seeger and I decided to push the Geo to her limits the other weekend. It took all three cylinders giving everything they had for Tabbi (that's my Geo's name) to make it up some of the steep hills. At one point Sam and Kevin had to get out and push or else we would not have made it. Below is a short film I made to memorialize our trip. May adventure live on in your heart wherever you find yourself and may you find yourself wherever there is adventure to be had.

Arts & Crafts

I found some discounted Easter Egg decorating supplies so me and Cory decorated one of our housemates eggs.

Cute aren't they. I can only assume that he ripped them apart fried their guts and then ate them. Some people don't appreciate art at all.

50 Books in 52 Weeks

This is my second try at reading 50 books in a year. Last year I finished a little over 20. I have one shelf of fiction and one of Non-fiction. I have a fair amount of J.R.R. Tolkien and almost all of the Non-Fiction is related to the Bible in some way. I also plan on listening to most of the Wheel of Time series on tape by Robert Jordan. Here is hoping this year is more successful than last. I just finished the lb. of Jasmine Green Pearls I have been drinking over the last year. I really loved that tea even more since I bought it from a truck driver through direct paypal deposit. I guess its time to be drinking other varieties and finding other adventures.

p.s. Check out my reading shelves for this year and you can see my progress or lack thereof at
