Type-O-Phile at Ugly Green Chair, she offers a list of the best places to find both free and not-free fonts. This is great because every time I need a new font I end up emailing to ask her again where all the best font sites are!

    I’ve been thinking a lot about inspiration or mood boards lately. I was planning on getting a piece of corkboard, though the higher tech option is really cool too!

    The absolute best free audiobooks I’ve ever found is Nathan Lowell’s Golden Age of the Solar Clipper – Trader Tales. It is a six-book series that begins with Quarter Share, and once you start, you won’t be able to stop!

    It’s available on Podiobooks.com, and iTunes.

    Nathan just finished the sixth book in the series, Owner’s Share, and began releasing it over Christmas. And people like me, stalking the Podiobooks website, waiting for the next episode, were significant contributors to bringing down the Podiobooks web server for several days! The books are just that good!!

    Thanks for the link in the roundup. Seriously.

    The Seattle Public Library has tons of free audiobooks via Overdrive and netLibrary. I’ve personally never bought an audiobook in my life, and I listen to a new one every week. (I do donate to the library to make up for this.) Most other large libraries have these services, too. Use them, because they cost an arm and a leg, but the more people use them, the more librarians will buy! (I’m a former librarian, so I must plug this or my badge will be stripped.)

    Concurring with Reading(and chickens)! Overdrive is a great resource for free audiobooks…there’s even an iphone app (though not all audiobooks work on the iphone/mac). I’m currently listening to Atlas Shrugged…unabridged, 63 hours long!
