HOW TO PLAY THE PIANO BY EAR: HOME STUDY COURSE (PDF ebook)
How to Play the Piano By Ear: A Simple Home Study Course gives
you the quickest and easiest way to learn to play the piano by
ear... while, in the process, learning most everything you'll
need to know about musical notation "as you go". It is a
wonderful, motivating, accessible "how to" manual that many top
pianists once used to perfect their piano playing. (And even if
you're already playing the piano by note, you'll benefit
immensely from investigating what ear playing can contribute
to your further progress.) Normally $14.95, but not today!

DRAWING FOR BEGINNERS, by Dorothy Furniss (PDF ebook)
This classic book by Dorothy Furniss is a wonderful introduction
to drawing, well written and nicely illustrated. Included are
chapters on sketching from life and from your imagination,
sketching people and animals, perspective drawing, drawing tools,
and much more. Probably not as many illustrations as you could ask
for, but the text is every bit as good - if not better - than most
modern "how to" drawing guides.
