    Default Academic E-Books

    Something I've always struggled with is finding academic ebooks, it isn't even for the cost saving as the library has most but for the ease of reading it.

    This one for example - Business Law in Scotland by Gillian Black I'm having to use my fucking phone and pegs to hold open so I can read and take notes - brutal.

    Any ideas where I can find these kind of things online? I always struggle with Torrent and NZB sites.

    The best one i found was:

    But i don't know if it is still up and running and if it is it is bloody hard to get an invite. My account has since been closed and so i can't invite you (they are ruthless when it comes to share ratio etc).

    I went to a torrent invite site and paid about 15 Euros to get an invite. But once i was in there are a hell of a lot of ebooks - i was able to get about 80% - 90% of my course books when going through my computer sciences degree! I must have saved £££££'s! And like you say, i found it much easier to use a digital copy, it is also easier to reference.

    The book I'm looking for doesn't show in the search results.
