In this part of the world, we don’t really have a strong culture of buying textbooks in university. When you’re in school, it is usually an easy task to find someone with a copy of the textbook that you need and get it from them. However, if you’re ever struggling to get your hands on a copy of a book that you need, we’ve put together a list of websites where you can get some free textbooks, with no hassle.
Manybooks.net, like the other websites on this list, has a large collection of textbooks, and other more creative literary works as well. The website does require you to create a free account, or sign in with your google account. But after that you just select the title that you want and download it. You also get to choose which format you want, from PDF, TXT to ePub and a host of other formats.
This is another website that I would highly recommend. The user interface allows you navigate the website pretty easily even if it’s your first time on the site. You can search for the title that you want and then select your preferred format to download. The available formats are ePub, PDF, MOBI and some others.
The homepage of this website is constantly updating itself with titles that you might be interested in. Of course, there’s also a search bar to help you find what you’re looking for. You can get your book file at either a TXT file that you can read online or get it as a zip file to read whenever you want.
Library Genesis is a website that catalogs free titles from other websites across the web. This means that none of the books you’ll be getting from Library Genesis are on the website. So, you find a title, and then you select a mirror to download it from. I recommend using Libgen.lc. Files come in a PDf format.
