10 free books for military

Each active duty military member is authorized 10 free Paperback Books and/or Playaways (audio books) a year through MilitaryOne Source.

Sign up for Military OneSource.  Once you login, click on the "Tools" tab near the top right of the page. Scroll down to the "Family & Recreation" banner, and under the "Libraries"
heading, click on "Online Library Resources" this brings up a page with many options instead of picking any of those look above them where it shows the list of things you have clicked on choose "Library Resources".   This will bring up a different page Click on "Playaway and Paperback books". You can pick what you want from the non fiction and fiction lists and add it to your cart. You do not have to get ten at once. You have a year from your first book all 10.  (don't forget that next to each selection it will say whether or not it is paper back or a playaway)

Playaways are pre-loaded on MP3 players with a start, stop and pause functions. When you pause it, it remembers where you left off--if you forget to pause, it will at least remember the last chapter playing.
They are also available for checkout at your base library. They provide incentive to exercise and/or are great for travel. Exercise incentive
because you will want to keep listening to the story (being read by someone else) and will hopefully look forward to the next workout to follow the story through until the end.

Additionally, the "Library" tab provides a lot of other free services for active duty families.
One awesome resource is the Peterson's Online Academic Skills Course that helps our Airmen, their spouses and kids advance their math and verbal skills. Individuals start by taking pre-tests which measure current skill level. Then the course builds an individualized learning
just for the person - meaning you get just the lessons you need to improve your skills... in the comfort and privacy of their home and ... its free!!
