either that or a bottle of "whine". (And yeah I know it is Kendall-Jackson) But if one can't actually spell the name I doubt the person actually owns one, let alone reads.

Okay, maybe you can also explain what "next blocks books" means.............Seriously, I"m not trying to be 'snarky', but this post makes very little sense.

What scares me most is that its asking for "academic" books.

PA1SA:

We do not post torrent links.

We also refrain from posting in different threads about the same subject.

Please take this advice into consideration on your next post/subject.


Thank you,
Don

hehehe...yeah, scares me too. Sounds like a "poster child" for why a lot of folks should NOT be allowed to home-school.

here is the closest I came to "next blocks books":

http://www.pinaclebooks.com/si/062371.html

I just did some creative extrapolation and that was the best that came along using "next block" books as a search.

And for the OP, just having a ponder at your question. For all we know you are new to all this and might even be searching for your grand kids...just take it as good natured ribbing is all....we all had to start somewhere!!

There you go. Bet you never misspell "Kindle" again!

No, we can't help with the free downloads.

However, go to this thread, introduce yourself, tell us where you are from, and what you are studying. You may find others who share your interests and can guide your to less expensive sources for books than retail......Good luck!

No problem, PA1SA.

The reason for no torrent links is because they often contain copyrighted (thus illegal) books.

If you are in the United States and want to save money on textbooks, the best 'legal' approach I know is the purchase of international text books. These are texts that are printed for use in countries such as India, and that are then resold into the U.S. market. According to Time.com:
http://www.time.com/time/nation/arti...838849,00.html
these texts are legal for you to buy even though they may not be legal for the seller to sell.

Anyway, I've heard students who bought $150 textbooks for under $30. And the books were the same as the US editions, just with different covers. Of course, that is your risk -- ie you must trust/hope the editions are the same.

Not to mention you cannot sell them back. They are actually illegal (*I think*) to sell in the US. When I worked at the textbook store, we were not allowed to stock them.
