Font Squirrel is a great place to go when you're looking for a new font for a project, website, or reading application.

Like many font sites, you can browse by style like "serif" or helpful tags like "corporate" or by language like "Hebrew."

But you don't even have to search for "FREE" because all the fonts on the site are ready to download, most of them with webfonts as well as desktop, application, and ereader licenses. Many are as lovely as the ones I pay hundreds for at commercial foundries.

They also have an "almost free" section listing bargain fonts.

Do you often pay hundreds of dollars for fonts? *boggles*

Or maybe you do website work or something where that kind of thing is what you do--it is just not a part of my daily needs. : )

Oh, I understand that making fonts is probably a lot of work! It's just that the thought "maybe I'll buy a font today" is something that would never occur to me. But I appreciate that it must be an art and a subject of geekery, just one that I know nothing about!

Although now that I think of it, I do have a preferred font that I use when I write a document--it is Constantia.
