Dear Researcher, For some time, I have been researching online for free eBooks to download. I have found many, and like them very much. I am interested in finding a site, or a way to "mass download" eBooks. Maybe somewhere there is a zip file with a large number of eBooks on it. Or maybe a eBook library somewhere with a "download all" option. Of course, I have found many on my own, but it would take far too long to go to each site, and download each and every one, and then to try and organize it. I am looking for non-fiction eBooks. Get rich quick schemes, cookbooks, dieting, tony robbins, eBay schemes, self help eBooks, eBooks about the government, eBooks about car repair, computer repair etc... I am not interested in fiction eBooks. If anyone can find a site with 5000+ of these eBooks, or multiple sites that would allow for easy downloading, I would surely be happy to pay you for the research. Thank you.

To help you with your project, first let me introduce you to "download accelerators" or "Leech" programs. These programs have three main functions: to speed up your downloads, to allow you to pause and resume downloads, and (most importantly) to allow you to download every file linked to from a given page. In some instances, you may want to configure the program to only download files with a specific file extension, such as .lit, for example. There are many download accelerators out there. Download Accelerator Plus is one of the well known ones, however, it has been criticized for displaying ads and the privacy concerns this raises. So while, I have included it in this listing, I would suggest that you choose LeechGet. LeechGet http://www.leechget.de/ Download Accelerator Plus http://download.com.com/3000-2071-10127147.html Star Downloader http://www.stardownloader.com/ TechTV: "Download Accelerators: Do They Really Work" by Allen Woo and Roman Loyola http://www.techtv.com/screensavers/products/story/0,24330,3409648,00.html Also, I have included links to sites that have ebooks available for free download: Project Gutenberg http://www.ibiblio.org/gutenberg/ Black Mask Online http://www.blackmask.com/page.php Elegant Solutions Software and Publishing Company http://esspc-ebooks.com/all.asp Microsoft Reader Catalog of eBooks, Category: Free http://www.mslit.com/default.asp?mjr=FRE Search Strategy: Find a reference to download accelerators and find the Guttenberg project. Search Terms: Guttenberg ebooks ://www.google.com/search?q=Guttenberg+ebooks Search Terms: better than download accelerator ://www.google.com/search?q=better+than+download+accelerator I hope that you have found this information useful and easy to understand.

Downloaded terrible software, and was then stuck with no instructions on how to use.
