    I don't even know if this is allowed, but winter is my time to study new things, so I'm looking for Internet reading topics, interesting websites, and forums where I can learn something new!

    Of course you can't post any sites that compete with BYC (send me those by PM if you want, although BYC will remain my first love).

    What I'd really like to find is a website where I can read whole books.

    thanks!
