Likely the largest and one of the older file sharing sites dedicated solely to the printed word and image. Despite the name, there must be considerably more than 3000 titles here and the collection grows constantly. This IS a file sharing site, which means that none of the files here are hosted on this site, but are linked to. Most of the major uploading services are utilized, including Megaupload, Hotfile, Uploading.com and the sadly too-popular Sharingmatrix and other newcomers currently filling the gap left by the collapse of Rapidshare uploading at the time of writing.
The range of material here is extensive and that's putting it mildly. Everything from obscure engineering books and journals, through theology and occult mysteries, to mens' magazines from all over the world, comics and graphic novels, magazines in many languages and of course, plenty of computer and programming-related material too.
The site has never abandoned its very straighforward, mainly textual presentation and on first sight it looks too plain and dull to be interesting. Don't believe it, it's absolutely chock-full of material to please anyone's reading interests. If I have a complaint at all, it's that the catalog is sorted by date of entry, rather than by title, and there could be more subdivisions given the wide range of material even within one topic area. It really does help to know what you're looking for, and to use the site search once you do, or you can get bogged down pretty easily.
The usual disclaimer about file sharing applies: most of all of the material presented here is copyright and permission to upload and distribute it has not been given either by the publishers or the copyright holders. Downloading of copyright material without paying for the privilege is illegal in most countries and if you go off and do it after reading anything I've written, that's your choice and not my recommendation.
