4 Legal Ways To Get Free Textbooks.

howtodropoutofschool:

1. Open Culture:  Not a large a selection, but high quality texts. If you just want to skim a book to brush up on a course you took in ninth grade, download one of these. I have yet to be disappointed.

2. Book Boon: Provides free college-level textbooks in a PDF format. Probably the widest range of subjects on the web. The site is also pretty.

3. Flat World Knowledge: The worlds largest publisher of free and open college textbooks. Humanitie texts are particularly difficult to come by, this site has a great selection in all disciplines.

4. Textbook Revolution:  Some of the books are PDF files, others are viewable online as e-books, or some are simply web sites containing course or multimedia content.

5. Library Pirate: I’ve always had an addiction to torrent based pirating. When this site opened a few months ago, I went a little overboard. After dropping two hundred on a paperback spanish textbook, I downloaded the ebook version illegally. I also got a great Psyc text i’m obsessed with.  It will be interesting to see how this site grows- they already have a great selection.

IT WAS SO GOOD OH MY GOD, it was two gentlemen of Verona and the drunk actor was Sylvia and she was SO FAR GONE. best moment: [enter proteus] sylvia: who’s this cunt?

(for anyone unfamiliar with the concept, shitfaced shakespeare is a Shakespeare play done completely straight, but with one of the actors completely plastered, so you get all the amusement of watching drunk people in stupid costumes trying to do something complicated but without having to take responsibility for anything they do)

hi! it’s still very much in the process of being written at the moment, i got a bit sort of sidetracked into the history of castrati for a bit there, but as soon as it’s done/hopefully accepted i’ll be posting a link, although that might take a while - it’s all gone a bit musicological but hopefully it’ll still make sense. man i’m just really glad people want to read it!! (if that’s something people are interested in i can post my bibliography so far, there’s some interesting stuff out there)

my life has reached its pinnacle. my history of theatrical consumption has been rendered pointless. where do i go from here

daghdha said: (1/2) Outlander is a new Starz series based off of the romance novels written by Diana Gabaldon throughout the early 90's to her most recent publication earlier this year. It's set in the highlands of Scotland (and later some other places) and the first book deals with Claire Randall being transported through time to the time near the second Jacobite uprising where she meets Jamie Fraser. Obviously romance ensues, but also a whole lot of fighting, near-rape at the hands of the English captain

(2/2) Black Jack Randall who, being a direct ancestor of her 1940’s husband Frank, looks exactly like him but is basically Satan in uniform, and also mystery involving Jamie’s past, Claire’s future, and it’s pretty good for the most part. Things are historically accurate for a better part of the book, but it does stretch a bit in some places. The show’s been worth watching if you can get past the Bella Swan-esque inner monologue. Also Sam Heughan (Jamie) is pretty nice to look at. 

oh gosh thank you!! this is such good info, i’m really tempted to start watching now - i love a period drama but i get really leery about stuff set in scotland because it usually just makes me really angry (c.f. REIGN OH MY GOD FUCK THAT SHOW), but this sounds kind of amazing, esp. the time-travel element
