If you love to read, you probably still visit your local library and bookstores. After all, there's no way to enjoy a book more than holding one in your hands, flipping from page to page.
But that doesn't mean you can't also enjoy reading electronic versions of books. With hundreds of thousands (or millions) of eBooks, many for free, you can get lost in a good novel anytime, or a technical book, if you need to read one for work, school, or just to improve your skills.
Those skills include using computer programs, which can help you land a better job, get a promotion, or change your career. One free resource with an incredible collection of books is from Microsoft.
Whether you're a Microsoft novice, or you're an IT (information technology) pro, there are free resources to up your game. Every year, Microsoft's Director of Sales Excellence, Eric Ligman, releases hundreds of eBooks to help you learn to use Microsoft programs.
This year, there are more than 500 eBooks and online guides on the Microsoft Developer blog. They're all free, and have been downloaded millions of times.
Note: Some book titles on the site may sound intimidating. Don't worry about it. Scroll around until you find the book that matches your skill level.
