Question ID: 782986
I need a list of eBooks on the subject of ?ideas for websites?,
?themes for websites?, ?ideas for online businesses? etc.

The titles I am looking for should NOT be ?how-to? ebooks on starting
your online business.  This type of information may be included but it
is the ideas side I am primarily interested in.

The eBooks can be in pdf or exe format.

The eBooks may be freely downloaded or for sale.

The eBooks may come with resale rights or not.

I am looking for eBooks that were origionated in electronic format.

The answer to this question should comprise a list with the titles of
the eBook and url where the eBook can be either purchased and/or

(Please note: these items may be in time-sensitive areas such as
online auctions - this is fine ? if they are please make this clear)

I am NOT interested in titles that are primarily available in print
and have been made available in electronic format.

I am NOT interested in eBooks that are only available through a
membership site or subscription.

Here is a good example of the type of eBooks I am looking for:

If this doesn?t work properly then run this first:

The eBooks you find may be of a higher or lower quality than this.

I am looking for a comprehensive list so have posted the question at $200

I will happily answer any questions you have.

Please only answer this question if you are prepared to seriously
drill down into the subject.  PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE no time wasters.

Is this a good example of what you are looking for?

Hi EasterAngel,

Thank you for taking time to look at my question.  I have followed the
link you provided to the eBook.

There are no sample pages available ? so without looking at the
contents of the eBook it is difficult for me to say whether this is a
good example or not.

Going by the title alone, it would appear to be a book about off-line
business rather than on-line business.  It is online business that I
am interested in.

Now if the title was ?101 ideas for starting an on-line business for
less than xxx? that would be much more promising.

Thank you for your time and interest.

Hi noeleo,

Please have a look at the following ebooks and let me know if they are
suitable  It's taken me quite some time to sift through available
"stuff" and hand-pick nine titles. How many titles in all are you
hoping for? At first glance, there seems to alot available but they
either turn out to be just articles (not ebooks), how-tos, marketing,
offline businesses, etc.

Hi Hummer,

Thank you for your efforts (and your clarification regarding
researchers).  The titles you have listed are fine.

For the $200 mark I would be hoping for 30 ? 40 titles, other wise $5
per title.  If you are happy to proceed on this basis please do.  If
less that 30 titles I would need to adjust the value of the question
but am not sure if this is possible.

?Sift? is really the word, I would do it myself but I simply don?t have the time.

All the best,

Further clarification?

Hello Hummer,

I have been thinking? I would accept a 50/50 split between ideas for
online businesses and ideas for ?off-line? business.

This will make it a little easier to get the numbers up to the 30-40
range if you decide to proceed.

Many thanks,

Ummmm I don't know about the rest of you - but I find it highly
suspicious when someone posts links to Executable files from an
unknown web site....

Regarding negative comment?

Hello vballguy-ga,

Exe is a legitimate file type for eBooks as is pdf, the exe file
format offers additional functionality that is not available in the
pdf format.

Launching an exe eBook can present problems for different computer
systems, the exe utility I posted is to overcome that ? granted I did
not code this utility myself but I have used it without any problem.

If your concern extends to other users, you can safely right click and
save an exe without launching it, then scan the file with any security
features/utilities you may have, you could then post your concerns
based on your findings instead of posting your assumptive remarks.

You might also consider contacting Google directly if you feel my
question or url?s are inappropriate, before posting a comment.

There are millions of websites on the Internet, so ?unknown websites?
really is a point of view, the website in question is my own:

I have better things to do than post malicious code on Google Answers.

If you had read my question more carefully you could have saved yourself some time:

?PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE no time wasters.?

I find it ?highly suspicious? that a ?researcher? would take time out
to post such flippant comments.

Hi noeleo,

In regards to your statement, "I find it ?highly suspicious? that a
?researcher? would take time out to post such flippant comments",
vballguy-ga is not a GA researcher. Anyone can post comments on GA but
only researchers can answer questions or post clarification questions.
Researchers are distinguished from everyone else by their linked blue

Speaking of clarifications, did you see mine?  Are the three ebooks
that I posted good examples of what you need? How many are you hoping
to find?
