    https://www.lulu.com is a US small print company that, a bit like https://www.cafeexpress.com will let you upload your book and print it for you. You can either do it yourself or set up a shot. Several of the books here have free downloads - check it out .

    Does anyone know if there is a UK eqivalent of this site, I couldn't find one.

    This is my fave:

    Loads of classics, and some real gems.

  • Here's a couple of the most important Libraries you will ever visit!!

    survivalebooks.org and spiritwritings.com will tell you where you are going when you leave this earthly existence!! Don't be spooked !! This is rational evidence, contained in 100's of books, some dating back a 100 or more years. The evidence comes from those coming back,and in front of many reliable witnesses, they tell us all about the life to come.Out loud, and in your presence !!
    These witnesses include many highly qualified scientists,lawyers,writers and even 4 times Prime Minister of Britain, Mr Gladstone.
    Get into some of these books ! They are rivetting reading. They are the greatest adventure story ever told !!
    Start with "On the Edge Of the Etheric" by Arthur Findlay. Written in 1931, it has been translated into 18 languages and Braille. It is still in print, but free to download. Findlay was a Magistrate and a Scottish Stockbroker. You think they could pull the wool over his eyes? Go on !! Get a Life !! Before it's too late !!!

    What about this one -

    Just type in Author/title details and it should come up with something, thousands of books listed it says - http://digital.library.upenn.edu/books/

    This is a bit specialist, but Etana books has some Egyptology and Archaeology volumes (particularly hard to find ones) in scanned-in format. Go to
    http://www.etana.org/coretexts.shtml
    for the full list.
