Round 3 of the Sharethreads
Bibliotik is currently on a freeleach for 20 more hours, so make a request (for things that aren't available elsewhere, like libgen or bookzz) and maybe someone can help you. If you have anything to share then feel free.
Check 4ch.be (the warosu replacement) when either of those go down.
The previous thread had NYRB, Dalkey Archive, Pushkin Archive and Oxford World Classics mass-torrents, among other things. If you're new to torrents, try reading the sticky on /t/ and /g/. /g/ also has many threads related to torrents, such as ongoing PTG (private tracker general) and the QTDDTOT (assuming the posters are feeling generous)
These are some books that people (and I) have been requesting for a while. Perhaps some are out there?

> Flight of Lucifer by Bloom and his Anatomy of Influence, also Bloom's and Frye's books on Blake
Flight is not on there. Anatomy of Influence is in .epub here: http://libgen.io/get_ads.php?md5=12bb8709d518d741decc06eff4fa594a and the only thing in their archives with Frye/Bloom is "Criticism of Society: Interviews", interested?
Hope I was of some help.
>Jaroslav Hasek - The Good Soldier Svejk
Are you the same person who keeps asking for this in every single thread? I swear I've told you about it being on libgen at least twice. Is there something wrong with it?
Frye and Bloom wrote seperate books on Blake, sorry if I was unclear. Or are you saying that's all they have of either writer? I'd be interested in CoS:I anyway, as well as the Kinski book if you'd like to upload them.
Also requesting anything by Arno Schmidt and Robert Walser, and Our Exagmination Round His Factification for Incamination of WIP
Also, could you be slightly more specific regarding Bloom and Frye's works on Blake? Did you mean Bloom's "Blake's Apocalypse"? And Frye's "Fearful Symmetry"? Both of them are on libgen.
"Fearful Symmetry" is Frye's book
"Blake's Apocalypse: A Study in Poetic Argument" is Bloom's.
Also by Bloom:
The Literary Criticism of John Ruskin
The Visionary Company: A Reading of English Romantic Poetry
A Map of Misreading
Wallace Stevens: The Poems of our Climate
Agon: Towards a Theory of Revisionism
anything you can find is very appreciated!
I've been looking for Stain by Rikki Ducornet
The Rainbow stories by William Vollmann, but I think people have asked for that in the previous threads with no luck.
Thanks for the work you've put into this!
Oh right, just started back at uni, guess I do
Anything else on FW would be great. Some I'd like
The Dream of H. C. Earwicker
Northrop Frye's Anatomy of Criticism
Two Words for Joyce by Derrida
The Textual Diaries of James Joyce
Joyce's Uncertainty Principle
Who Sleeps at Finnegans Wake?
As many have already elucidated: search the public archives for Frye, Derrida, and Earwicker. You're guaranteed to find what you need.
For all purposes FW, here's a good place to start: http://www.fweet.org/pages/fw_smap.php
I see that - there's a neater version on bib, but it's not the same translation:
I don't know what this one is worth, but if the libgen one is better it looks like it should be easy to procedurally fix
I can provide these once I get home in 18 hours or so:
The Sufferings of Prince Sternenhoch
Marthe: The Story of a Whore
Monsieur De Phocas
Silk and Insight
I don't know how these sharethreads work, but I'm guessing we ask for books and someone provides them?
if that's the case:
Little, Big by John Crowley
Complete Works of Harold Pinter
Collected Poems of Basil Bunting
Collected Poems of James Merrill
Transfigurations: Collected Poems by Jay Wright
and I'll just take whatever can be provided of: >>7621722
Another request for this stuff, thank you for your time!

Again, thanks in advance
If as I assme you're just seeding from your own crappy connection, try medium-sized files: with everybody using a seedbox they'll usually have filled up smaller files before your client is even aware of there being a leecher. If the file is big enough you might get to seed a part or two before the download is completed by the superseeders. But don't go too big, they scare people because of ratio and they'll get them elsewhere.
Of course the easiest is still to upload stuff yourself, but in all cases you might need to wait a long while before getting any hits.
You can also cross seed non retail books. This is because the majority come off kat.cr or libgen. Sort textbooks by snatchers, observe the ones with 0 uploaders then find identical files to cross seed. Try to do this with the bigger files and you'll have an enormous buffer in no time.
Does anyone have anything on Diogenes? I've been looking for some books on him but haven't found any I could either afford or download, so any in general on the dog would be nice if possible. Sorry I can't offer a specific book title or anything.
Azw3 is amazon kindle (usually digital purchase) ripped ebook. Open it in Calibre :)
When I cross-seed I download it from somewhere else. So as long as I grab it from somewhere other than Bibliotik and tell my client not to download anything (and anyway there's 0 seeders so there's like 0 risk of accidentally freeloading myself) then I get the full upload credit because Bibliotik doesn't know where I got it from. Also it brings dead torrents back to life.

If anyone has those, thanks.
>Seeding on my seedbox

who here rare flag?
If bibliotik mods really believed in their mission they would make copies of uploaded books open to the whole internet anonymously via openbittorent tracker, and keep the uploading, and de-drming on a private and well regulated tracker
There are no "people who might want it" without access to it. If you wan a bib invite, you find a way to get it. I've given out 10 invites. 2 of those actually contributed to the community, both by up and downloading. 3 of those never even downloaded anything, even though they had 2GB of free shit to download. The rest got maybe 50MB worth of books and then fucked off.
I actually live here and believe me, there are plenty of shenanigans to be had, friend.
Can anyone just check if they've Time Life Books up there?
Old collection of mostly crap sold primarily by teleshoping. They have couple of gems, though. They're most definitely not digitized by publishers, so they would need to be fanscans. I've been really looking for couple of them for ages now.
Here's the full volume list
And couple of highlights
Only 2, one is unseeded (art of woodworking) and the other one is a Debbi Fields chocolate cookbook.
Then there would be no incentive for people to upload anything. The 24h FL that
Unavailable: everything but 40 Stories by Barthelme, will share soon
School for fools is in the NYRB torrent
Only The Dragon is available
Get the oxford
Only vol. 1 available, or an audiobook
>Stain by Rikki Ducornet
kek tldr, you pushed your luck
>Transfigurations: Collected Poems by Jay Wright
>Little, Big by John Crowley
have his plays, that ok?
Hit me up man, I love trackers and books
If you were mentioned in this post, I've upped your requests here. Penguin Editions of Moliere/Racine are here too
>a lot of books there are so niche that nobody even gives a fuck
Well, with books it's like that. They offer huge amount of material in small files, so when you initially offer them out, you may have small to zero interest, but then again just having it out huge. I know I'm not interested in a lot of stuff, my ebook collection right now is huge enough that It would last me few lifetimes with things in it that I doubt I'll ever even look at, but I've also encountered instances where I was suddenly very interested in certain work, was looking for it all over the internet, and then I'd realise I had it all the time in my collection that I downloaded from obscure place a decade ago.
Looking for The Ecclesiastical History of the English People (Oxford World's Classics)
By the way, is anyone working on seeing which of the (digital) Oxford World's Classics books are not in the pack? If not then I'll get started on that
No it's about building up a directory of uploads. I myself uploaded and seeded 119 books to the site. The only way to reach the official thread on what is to upload and to have a source of uploads (overdrive). 99% of Bib's entire library is probably sourced from 3 autists who upped 2000+ books each.
Any of these by chance?
Dyer, Christopher - Standards of Living in the Later Middle Ages
Hanawalt, Barbara - The Ties that Bound: Peasant Families in Medieval England
Norton Critical Edition of the English Bible, King James Version (volumes 1 and 2)
Ross and McLaughlin - The Portable Medieval Reader
Boissonade, P. - Life and Work in Medieval Europe
Bloch, Marc - French Rural History
I prefer Oxford World's Classics, the quality is consistently good.
With Penguin the quality varies, some are very good, some are subpar, generally it depends on the popularity of the work getting the treatment.
I have one request, dear Bibliotik good samaritan.
The Lolita Effect, by M. G. Durham
I've checked libgen, Google and a search engine someone made in Reddit, all to no avail.
Also, I know Overdrive has it: https://www.overdrive.com/media/479639/the-lolita-effect
Wow, thank you very much fami/lit/!!!
Did you unDRM it yourself? Cause if you're not from Bib and the book wasn't at MyA I don't know where you got it.
Anyway, thanks again!
It all depends on edition. Oxfords Milton's Paradise Lost. Is blank transcript of the poem (since noone needs annotation, all right! actually quote by P.P. from introduction) with Pullman shitting up his own philosophy before each book. Absolutely disgusting.
Last 30 minutes of the freeload, I'll fill any requests made in that time. After that, bye bye all.
>Baptised In The Blood Of Millions
No idea, but it's in that set. Published by Oxford Univerity Press.
The above statement was a joke but this is the true passage from introduction that almost made me throw up:
>A correspondent once told me a story—which I’ve never been able to trace, and I don’t know whether it’s true—about a bibulous, semi-literate, ageing country squire two hundred years ago or more, sitting by his fireside listening to Paradise Lost being read aloud. He’s never read it himself; he doesn’t know the story at all; but as he sits there, perhaps with a pint of port at his side and with a gouty foot propped up on a stool, he finds himself transfixed. Suddenly he bangs the arm of his chair, and exclaims ‘By God! I know not what the outcome may be, but this Lucifer is a damned fine fellow, and I hope he may win!’ Which are my sentiments exactly.
>I’m conscious, as I write this introduction to the poem, that I have hardly any more pretensions to scholarship than that old gentleman. Many of my comparisons will be drawn from popular literature and film rather than from anything more refined. Learned critics have analysed Paradise Lost and found in it things I could never see, and related it to other works I have never read, and demonstrated the truth of this or that assertion about Milton and his poem that it would never have occurred to me to make, or, having made, to think that I could prove it. But this is how I read this great work, and all I can do is describe
that way of reading.
Welp, freeload over. Hope you all enjoyed the NYRB torrent and the req fills from this thread and some in the previous one. Pissed to see that I only got like 5 thanks for that all - if you just request and abandon the thread then you're the worst type of cunt since you just completely waste the time of anons filling them.
Anyways I'm out, PEACE
So it should be okay on my kindle? Itll work? I dont read on calibre (laptop), i just open them to see that theyre not glitched, since that glitches the device. Sorry for the silly question.
I'm the OP from the second thread and the one who uploaded most collections (with the shitty wifi that I'm stealing from my neighbor). I don't feel unappreciated at all, on the contrary, some anons got really emotional on the last thread. Happy to have helped out, just like some of you have helped me out in the past when I didn't have access to bib.
/lit/ can be shit sometimes, but there's also some really cool people in here, so cheers to all of you, and thanks for sharing the love.
And thank you again for all the great books you shared with us.
Those collections, man...
Oh shit I just realized, did anyone try looking for the hard to find LOEB's?
It's not that I was feeling unappreciated, it's that if you spam the thread with multiple requests and abandon it after an hour or two, it makes it less likely for me to fill the requests of an anon actually checking the thread since there's so many of them.
It's in the New Directions torrent here:
Roberto Bolano - The Savage Detectives
Roberto Bolano - 2666
so far on libgen and the rest of the internet, I've found only dead links, viruses and spanish editions. Please help.
>i told you, those i searched libgen and those links are dead
Oh, whoops, I didn't even read the whole of your post. I just read "Bolano" and automatically search on libgen because I knew they were there
Anyway, here's The Savage Detectives epub:
>mfw /pol/ doesn't get annotations
>reading Jewish commentary on a 17th-century English biblical epic
>mfw the printing press was invented by johannes gutenBERG
>mfw all print is now jewish propaganda
>mfw /pol/ needs hand written copies of everything
FUCK. You were right. I just discovered that there's entirely separate catalogue with fiction and found shitload ebooks of Cioran and other French writers I've been looking for everywhere. Thank you based anon!
Yes, they are. Remove your English language filter if you were using one, because they are both tagged in French (which is the language I assume you want them in, given the untranslated title)
Just a heads up, that paul leppin book is glitched once you put it in your ereader, you know when youre swiping left/right through your bools on kindle? The page goes blank when you get to it. But it works on calibre fine.
Can anyone help me find this book in online form please?
I'm looking for this book, anyone has it?
Trying to help a friend avoid ridiculous textbook fees in college
I found the first one he needs, but I can't find this one and I've been searching for hours
help would be greatly appreciated, but it has to be the 16th edition
Luckily for your friend, the newest edition changes are quite minimal according to the website (3 new articles + additions to the introduction) AND Cengage sells digital eChapters individually for like 6-7$ a pop.
So with 15th edition PDF + eChapters he could probably get the everything for 20$ or so.
Just a suggestion.
