Page by Page

Page By Page Books at is the equivalent of an online library of classic literature.

The site makes use of books on which the copyright has expired so they can be shared and read online for free.

The site lacks a search engine so to check out which books are available click "View all Authors" or check "See book list by Title" option.

From here just browse through the available books and authors alphabetically.

Most public domain book sites force you to download the whole book at once on one page or in extremely large chunks, this can make reading them or finding a lost place kind of tedious.

In contrast, this site loads a single page of text at a time making it much easier to read. If you do not fancy reading an entire book in one sitting simply bookmark it using your search engine and then open from the bookmarked page when you fancy dipping into the story again.

The site design itself is simple and uncluttered and it is fairly easy to track down interesting titles. At the moment there are only a couple of hundred books on the site but the number of available titles is increasing all the time

How To do just about anything. is a fairly big "How to" site offering "How to" guides on a wide variety of subject matter. While the sites claim of showing you how to do just about everything is perhaps a bit of an exaggeration, it does have 35,000 "How to" guides for a staggering amount of different things.

The site is organised by subjects: cars, personal care and style, that kind of thing. There is also a search option if you are looking for something specific fast.

Once a category and specific guide has been selected the "How to" itself is revealed. Each guide carries a difficulty rating and is separated into easy to follow steps. After following the "How to", the guide ends with tips and warnings.

While the tips can be useful, some of the warning advice can be a tad hysterical.
