Finding any books on the internet
Does anybody know a good way to find books to download from the internet using google?
A cute concept. Is this from the "google hacks" book ?
Registering for a 14-day trial membership at InformIT gives you a ticket. In addition, some of these links from my collection offer free online books:

I maybe wrong, but if you are looking for some old classics or some other out of copyright fiction or even some non-fiction, you should be able to spend quite some time at Project Gutenberg (1) or links from sites such as those of John Ockerbloom of the University of Penn.

http://www.fetchbook.info/ is a nice book search site for finding cheapest place to buy books...
Thanks for the help, guys.

While there are plenty of poor college students who post here. Many JOS forum posters are professional software developers (we get paid to program). While we had to fork over a lot of money for books and don't like doing so, many of us believe that stealing intellectual property is just plain wrong -- even when the property being stolen is only a couple of expensive computer books.

Guys if he was to raise his rates so he could afford those books, he wouldn't be able to compete with us to steal our jobs! So cut the poor guy some slack!
Good point, Dennis. I wonder if Bill Gates would let me skip the ante and just join his next poker game with other billionaires?

So you want warez. I know a warez site for technical books. It got almost all the best selling programming books that you can buy.
