    This is an awesome way to get into kiting for big kids (human-sized box kites, anyone?) or regular kids. Need a kite for little Timmy and Debbie? Grab some printer paper, some tape, and a straw. Need to know how to make a personal sail for land, sea, or ice? Read these how-tos and become the Eolus of your block. Great pics, easy-to-follow directions, and info from kite enthusiasts and experts. Plus, it's free. Pretty much unbeatable. Edit: instructables has a bunch of other awesome ebooks out there, too. All free or nearly-free. Check 'em out.
