Your Favorite Books Available Online!

I stumbled upon this very cool site called www.intexblogger.com which features the most popular books in downloadable PDF format, perfect for reading on the PC or on your mobile phone/Palm/Pocket PC. It's updated regularly (it has a "EBook Feature of the Day"), and has most of the famous and interesting books known to every avid bookworm. And they're all free!

General fiction and non-fiction, fantasy novels, and even self-help books, she's got what every bibliophile has ever dreamed of buying...

I was thrilled to find that the site had a copy of Lemony Snicket's "A Series of Unfortunate Events: The Penultimate Peril" and "The End", two of the books I most wanted to buy. After I downloaded the amazingly light RAR files, I was a bit worried to find that they were password-protected. However, I just posted a message requesting for the passwords on the site and the reply came a short while after. The passwords for the EBooks all have something in common, so one request was enough to know the passwords for all the files.

As for the issue of legality, I'm not really sure. The site claims that the files in the site are "governed by the 'fair use' rule under the copyright laws." Eitherway I find this very noble; This site kind of brings back reading to everyone, and makes it more affordable and easy... Think about it! It's been a long time since I last read a novel, and now this site has brought back my love for books.

I plan on donating an amount to the good soul who came up with this brilliant idea! I also found out that the site owner is a Filipino/Filipina (not sure), after I found out that the site contains a section labelled "Pinoy's World." Just one question though... Where does the site owner get all these PDF books???
