Cash Rewards


Yes, I thought that might get your attention, LOL! We all like free money, now don’t we? This site promises to send you some, just for completing offers. I’ve dealt with several sites like this, and they do generally live up to what they promise. The key of course, is making sure you understand exactly what it is that they are promising.

Right now, there is a survey for cash with a worth $25 payout. That’s good money for a few answering a few questions..



This is a collection of animated educational websites for children. BrainPOP offers some free studies, and you can subscribe for even more. I think the subscription price is a bit steep, but you can enjoy the freebies for….well, free!

Optical Illusions


This site contains 34 optical illusions, including a few Eschers, and some classics. You may or may not choose to visit this site when you are tired. I found on my visit that tiredness added quite a bit to the level of trickery. Number 26 is especially amusing late at night :)

Daily Lit



Too busy for books? Read them by e-mail. I’ve given you Frankenstein to get you started, but there’s much more to read there. They mail them out in small sections, about 5 minutes worth of reading.

And if you write short stories, check out the submission guidelines. The stories are searchable by title, author and keyword. You can read them online, print them or download them to your handheld.

Squashed Philosophers condenses the works that have shaped western thought into “something like readable”. Beginning with Plato and ending with Sir Karl Popper, you can click on each person on the timeline to get squashed readings. Each one has an estimated reading time as well. At the top of the page are links to “Squashed Divines” (which contains The Epics of Gilgamesh among others) and “Squashed Writers” (which contains way to much to even attempt to list).

Eric Carle


I don’t know why it never occurred to me to look for this before, but Eric Carle has a website. There is a list of books, as well as a photo/video gallery. The book lists give you plot summaries. I do wish there was more of his artwork on the site, but I guess you can’t have everything, right?
