    Colourful and bright after the rain.
  • Is this a Kosher site...

    They say you don't have to give any details but it will not let you download until you have given your email address...

    1) Why would anyone give all those absolutely free, when it sounds too good to be true it usually generates a query
    2) How do they earn their expenses let alone wages
    3) I wonder if they are selling the email address...

    Can this be checked out please!!!!!

    If some one had success in downloading and not being bombarded by spam emails please let us know....

    They contain adverts so the advertisers probably fund the pdfs.

    SpreadPyar -

    1) I've downloaded quite a few of these books with no problems whatsoever.
    2) As stated elsewhere - there is advertising throughout the PDF which no doubt pays for the books/service
    3) Do what I did - use a fake e-mail address! The system doesn't care, it just wants an entry

    Hope that helps!
  • No nursing books :( Good find though!

    Just use [EMAIL="no.marketing@please.com"]no.marketing@please.com[/EMAIL] as your email address will do nicely..................:D
    They will know that you don't want to disclose your email address and also they know that this email address doesn't lead them anywhere i.e. not to waste their time to send you newsletters and promotions. They give you free books!
  • Thanks Guys for the updates I will certanly use the email given by volcano99 Thanks all again.

    Thank you very much for sharing with us this valueable link. I have not downloaded any book yet but it seems it has quite desireable titles of books. :j

    It doesn't have to be a real address....

    In those occasions where it does need to be a valid one, use something like http://www.mailinator.com (also useful for freebies generally)
