I also made a kind of personal challenge to go with the official Quest... details here:
I really liked this one! Thanks!
Hi email@example.com I am glad!
This semester I am focusing on going back through the free books and finding the ones with illustrations so that I can create Flickr albums that show the illustrations. It's easy to update the blog posts: it's like Freebookapalooza version 2.0.
Here's an example of an updated blog post with info about illustrations 🙂
Freebookapalooza: Williston. Hindu Tales
That's a nice thing about using blogs for content management: you can "upgrade" the post later on based on new goals.
Laura, I missed this somehow...where do these free books live after you identify them. Do you house a bookshelf in Diigo and your blog links back to each book there?
I use a combination of blog post (where I can list the table of contents, making the blog very good for searching) AND Diigo, which allows me to send a specific link to a student that contains a specific subset of books.
So here is the blog:
And here's a typical Diigo link; if I know a student is interested in 1001 Nights, for example, I can send this Diigo link:
The Diigo links go to the blog post.
Different tools for different purposes, and my online world basically runs on a combination of blogs, Diigo, and Twitter. 🙂
