Project Gutenberg: Download 20,000 free books to your smartphone or PDA

Following up my earlier story about loading fiction onto your smart phone, you should be aware of the wonderful Gutenberg Project. This not-for-profit initiative has compiled electronic versions of over 20,000 books, including virtually any classic you can imagine, and offers them free of charge for download in a number of formats.

The volunteer-staffed project began in 1971, making it the first and longest-lived effort to distribute literature in electronic form. The offerings are either out of copyright or done with the permission of the copyright holder. The books are available in a number of open-source formats including HTML, readable in any browser.

The Gutenberg project has expanded its offerings beyond books, too, now offering audio books, music, sheet music, and video. If you have a hankering for some classic lit and a screen to read it on, the project is ready to hook you up.

Deducting Mortgage Interest FAQs

If you're a homeowner, you probably qualify for a deduction on your home mortgage interest. The tax deduction also applies if you pay interest on a condominium, cooperative, mobile home, boat or recreational vehicle used as a residence.

What Extra Tax Deductions Should I Make Sure To Take?

The federal government offers tax deductions and credits to reduce taxable income under certain circumstances. There are several that are often overlooked, including deductions for job hunting, caregiver expenses for dependents and children while you work, a credit to reduce taxes for moderate- to low-income earners and the premium tax credit associated with the Affordable Care Act. TurboTax can help determine if you qualify for these credits and deductions.
