Usborne (UK) BASIC Games Books Available for Free Download

Usborne has made available many of their 1980’s BASIC books available for free .pdf download. This includes several games books with TRS-80 programs you can type in.

Well, keying in long BASIC games is certainly a way to relive your Jr. High School years, yes? Good on Usborne in doing good for us. Even better would be to release them into the Public Domain, and publish the source code in a downloadable diskette format. Anyone want to OCR their program listings and share them back to Usborne as a thank-you?

There are actually many more Usborne BASIC books available than I was previously aware of. Most, if not all, appear to contain listings for the Model 1, 3 or IV BASIC.
