Some people have been requesting books because they haven’t been able to find them easily online, particularly if they are not in Project Gutenberg. They might like to try one of these sites.

The Online Books page at:
http://onlinebooks.library.upenn.edu

Also

Digital Book Index at
http://www.digitalbookindex.com

Both have very reliable search facilities and search PG and a number of other archives and libraries.

I'd like to have "In Pursuit of Valis: Selections from the Exegesis" by Philip K. Dick
It's a fairly rare out of print book that I own and would like to read but I'm afraid I'll damage it.

Is this book in the public domain, or, if not, do you have the permission of the copyright holder to reproduce it? Please don't ask for copyrighted material to be posted here - this is a "legit" site.

The book is rare and no longer in print.
It sells from between $90.00 to $1250.00 on abebooks.com
Like I said, I already own it but I am afraid of messing it up so I haven't read it.
I didn't ask anyone to steal it.
I just said I would like to have it.
I have not been able to find it in ebook form.
If you can find it for sale somewhere in ebook form please let me know.

This forum section is for requesting books to be uploaded to MobileRead. It is strictly for out of copyright material, or material posted with the permission of the copyright holder.

We have to be very careful about what's posted, or we risk the site being closed down.

I think this was just a case of being "unclear". Next time he will be more careful.

Re-format request

Hi, wizards! I see "Three Men in a Boat" and "Les Miserables" uploaded here, but I'd like to read them on a Kindle (when it arrives). I'm a mac person, so I don't have the PC conversion tools. If anybody could easily make kindle-able formats of the above, I'd love it! MOBI, RTF, TXT .... I'm not picky. Even if it has to be "part1" and "part2" for the longer of the above books.

Meanwhile, I've downloaded 130 some OTHER classics, for my spare reading time!

Hi

If you're not picky, you can get them both in text format at Project Gutenberg.

Three Men in a Boat
http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/308

Les Miserables
http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/135

I think Project Gutenberg is about the bestest site on the internet.

Try looking on Manybooks.net and Munseys.com. Both sites take stuff like that and transform it to a variety of different electronic formats.

For instance:
http://manybooks.net/titles/jeromejeetext953boat10.html
http://manybooks.net/titles/hugovictetext94lesms10.html

http://www.munseys.com/book/7494/Three_Men_in_a_Boat
http://www.munseys.com/book/5897/Les_Miserables

Conversions posted here are likely to be better over all, but if you don't see it here, those are excellent places to look.

May I have an official ruling, please? I would love to post the English translation by Mahadev Desai of Gandhi's autobiography. It is not at Project Gutenberg and Google Books won't show it with an unlimited view either. But it is very widely available on the internet including, for example, at Wikisource here. But their "source" page, which is here, does not read like a sound justification for posting it. So I ask: should I or shouldn't I? Thanks in advance for your help.

Sorry, but no. The fact that "the copyright holder doesn't mind" is not an excuse for copying it.

Isn't that the same thing that the copyright holder has given permission? And shouldn't it be OK then?

Have you read the page linked to, Tommy? It all sounds very "dodgy" to me. I'd really rather not take the chance here at MR.
