Website: The Book Stand


The Book Stand is a Tumblr Blog I operate, focussing on ebooks. I post concerning free ebooks, with the occasional post offering what I consider to be a good deal on an ebook. Most posts are for the Kindle platform, though there is the occasional post concerning ebooks in other formats that I sometimes come across. There are also various infographics, pictures and quotes that have to do with ebooks, reading, libraries, etc.

My most recent series of posts (today) include a great quantity of free ebooks available in the Kindle format and will be of especial interest to those interested in nonfiction works concerning the US Civil War, various other historical and biographical works and theological works, as well as some collections of classic works.

I have linked to The Book Stand below:

Book Art: 3D Magazine Sculptures


The link below is to an article (featuring pictures of the sculptures of course) on the 3D magazine sculptures of Yun-Woo Choi. These aren’t technically books, but they do loosely fit (loosely covers a lot of ground). Personally, these sculptures do very little for me, but others might like them.
