    Anybody ever seen any of those websites that offer textbooks online in PDF format? I found a site my freshman year in college and loved it, but I can't for the life of me remember what it was called.


    Thanks

    Since most of those sites are illegal I wont mention any here
    but the legal ones are :

    google books,

    SpringerLink

    Humana Press

    and such, they do require an academic subscription for the last two but you can download whole books is PDF format

    Speaking of which, some colleges are starting to try issuing kindles as a text book reader.

    Even if you have to pay they are illegal? None of those were the one I went to. I'll probably never find it again, I found it while looking for a book.
