Online, there is no free meal- but plenty of temporarily not-so-expensive ones (if you don't consider the cost of your time).
Since the 1990s (e.g. on Geocities.com, where I was I think Paris/1974 or something like that), I did online what I used to do offline: before you run, walk.
Before you invest in a project on a new technology, find some way to test it at the lowest possible cost (again, on the Internet, this means often just spending your own time).
Over the last few months, I used as a repository for my information pages on my books a Drupal-based free hosting service, called "Drupalgardens".
As the new owner announced a phasing out from August 1 2016 of the free hosting service, as my aim was really to (re-)test Drupal after having some of my content-based websites using it in the late 2000s (up to designing a social network architecture and business model for a customer using Drupal for the free version, Sharepoint for the corporate one)... it is now the time to move.
So, my http://www.robertolofaro.com/books now is within my "knowledge portal".
Obviously, just in time for the summer (when usually I have some spare time to focus on my own knowledge-testing and expanding projects).
Therefore, see you online!
