ebook acquisition website (hehohey)

Post by JUDGEDREDD » Mon Aug 12, 2019 1:52 am

I heard whispers in another thread of a certain location in cyberspace that may or may not have the facility to acquire ebooks without capitalist pigs dipping in my pockets.

(I usually only get second hand anyway so it's only big Jeff missing out)

Pls dont ban

Thanks Frank. I hate tech stuff (because i am hopeless at it) but will try to find my way through the smoke and mirrors.
I had been having no problems until a week or so ago.
Great for science papers as well as books.
