Thanks for your comments ..

@UTogger – hi Utogger,
Thanks for your comments. Did you find any sites useful out of these?

This is a great list. It’s fun just scrolling down and looking at the funky names of some of these sites: Authorama, Ebookhood, etc. Clever!

very nice collection for free e books resources, thanks for sharing

Hi Drake,
Thanks for the comment. This list is not a pre-ordered list ie not necessarily the best is coming on the top. But at the same time, I would agree with John Miller that Download Any Stuff does find Mp3 better than most other sites. Though it uses Google search, it still does the job very well.

@Drake Mallard – I don’t agree with your statement. I searched for about 20 ebooks on this site and found 18 of them instantly through Download Any Stuff. It may seem to use Google but is highly effective

A great list . Most of the sites are useful.
I particularly liked the first one – http://downloadanystuff.org and number 45 http://www.planetebook.com/
