You did get that it is F-R-E-E right? :)
A quick one because I have no business being online when I should be cleaning and packing. :) Here are a couple of old books – now public domain – for learning/teaching Geography. I like the gentle and conversational approach.
Please keep us in your prayers and have a great Ramadan everyone!
