guide to help people find ebooks & textbooks *(updated August 11, 2016)

Start by using these 4 steps

1) Search on Google

The name of the book + download and/or epub, “.epub”, mobi, “.mobi”, pdf, “.pdf”

Other ebook formats @ |

3) Search on &

An example search >

4) Search publicly tracked torrents


An example search >

Google [search for the name of the book + torrent]

An example search >

..and other public torrent indexes

An example search >

Publicly tracked torrent index “ebook/book” categories

..and ebook specific public torrent indexes

Use my guide for finding publicly tracked torrents
More public torrent indexes @ /links/publicly-tracked-torrents/#indexes

If you still cannot find your ebooks/textbooks, try using the steps below

First.. use these threads on Reddit



Use Google for sites without search options (site:the url of the site + the book title)

An example search >

Second.. try searching/browsing Reddit

Some Reddit sections do not allow/frown upon asking directly for pirated materials/requesting specific items



Third.. is a DDL (Direct Download Link) site for eBooks & eLearning | Music | Video | Software | Magazines | Newspapers | Comics | Games | Graphics | Vinyl & HR | Misc | AH News

Fourth.. – is a forum for mobile-releases with its own EBOOK devoted section

More DDL sites/blogs/forums @ /links/streaming-ddl/#ddl


#bookz on Undernet is an IRC channel dedicated to ebooks | more info

#ebooks on IRCHighway is an IRC channel dedicated to ebooks | more info

Sixth.. try this custom Google search

Seventh.. try other reliable ebook search engines/indexes (paid downloads) (scientific articles) | | (scientific articles) (academic papers) (magazines) (german) (german)

Eighth.. ebook/audiobook private torrent trackers

DO NOT join a private torrent tracker simply to try to find 1 book!
Private torrent trackers are communities that share a common interest
They are NOT leech-dumps

If you cannot find an ebook/textbook yourself using this guide, most likely it will not be found unless somebody has or can acquire a digital copy

Perhaps you know someone who has purchased a digital copy..

Or perhaps you can acquire a trial account for ebooks/etextbooks..

    Have you considered that trying to acquire a book for free is exactly the same as shoplifting. If you do it you ARE a criminal. Shoplifters go to jail.

    You are stealing not just the book, but the author’s payment as well. You’re also the kind of idiot that thinks all authors earn ‘enough’, that they all earn the same kind of money as JK Rowling. The truth is that most don’t earn enough to write full-time. They write at night, early in the morning, any moment they can snatch while holding down sometimes up to 2 jobs to make ends meet.

    Stealing online is no different than someone breaking into your home and stealing your stuff. Would that be ok with you? Unlikely. You’re also the kind of idiot that thinks entertaining you should be seen as a privilege. Do you work for free? Would you work for free? Unlikely.

    Authors put many long hours, sometimes years into writing a book. They go through many rejections before a publisher accepts it. If they self-publish they spend hard earned money trying to promote the book. Respect that. Pay for the book.

    Respect yourself. Don’t be a criminal.

    Why such blind allegiance to the law? Do you understand that EVERY atrocity in the history of mankind was implemented through the law? U.S. invasion of America, U.S. slavery of Africans, the WWII Holocaust, war, etc. The sooner you realize that laws are merely rules that the rich elite impose upon the poor the better of you will be.
