How To Download Free Ebooks On Your Phone

How To Download Free Ebooks On Your Phone

Have you been in a book store, or maybe just browsing the interwebs and come across a book that you REALLY wanna read, and thought about how you can download free ebooks on your phone? ….because physical books are so bulky and annoying to carry around? Did you think maybe, if I could figure out how to get it onto my phone, that would be sweet!?

ME TOO! I do it all the time and finally I’m here to show you how to download free ebooks on your phone and read them wherever and whenever you want!

Step 1.

Go to your app store and download “Bittorrent” (images are for Android, but iPhone would just apple’s app store)

Step 2.

Go to Amazon or where ever to find the book you want. This is important to download free ebooks on your phone because you have to make sure that it is offered in a digital version.

Tip: If it only comes in hardcover, it’s likely you will not find a digital copy of the book – tough luck. 🙂

Step 3.

Go to thepiratebay.org and search for the book you want. If you can’t download free ebooks on your phone after searching in Piratebay for it…. it might not be available in a digital version. Try another book. (sorry)

If you get one of these annoying popups, just click cancel, or if it opens another tab, simply close the tab and go back to the previous tab. Not sure how to switch between tabs? Hit me up on Twitter

Be sure to sort your results by highest number of Seeders (SE) by clicking on the SE link. This will ensure you get the best quality and most trusted file (no one wants to download a virus or crappy files).

Step 4.

Click the “Get Torrent” magnet link. Make sure it has the little magnet icon beside it. This will save you a couple steps if you use the magnet link rather than a mirror or direct download link.

If asked what application you want to use, choose “Bittorrent”. Allow the file time to download. When it is finished, simply click on the link in bittorrent and enjoy!

If you live in Canada like I do, and you’ve read over the internet laws, you will know that it is perfectly legal to download copyright material for your own personal use (for example, back ups, demos, etc). However, it is not legal to upload copyright material in Canada so how do you go about using peer-to-peer software like BitTorrent without uploading it to others?

Before we get started with the download process, I suggest you get yourself protected. I prefer to use a service like BTGuard that anonymizes your internet connection so it appears that you are located in a different area. My top two picks are BTGuard and Private Internet Access VPN. BTGuard is easy to use and gives you a couple different options, but it’s a little more expensive. Private Internet Access VPN, on the other hand, only has one option to choose from, it’s quite simple to use and it is actually a bit cheaper.

In the search results, you want to choose the most relevant option that has the most “Seeds”. Seeders are people that are sharing the file(s) from their computer and usually the more seeders, the better that torrent is. For this example, I am going to choose the Discography because I want to be able to maximize my efficiency (more songs per download).

Note: You can also see the number of files in the torrent – this is good to pay attention to when searching less popular items in order to avoid downloading viruses. For example, if you are downloading a discography but there are only 3 files contained – it might be a fake. So beware![/intense_icon_list_item]

Ok , so now you’re on the download page. PLEASE VIEW THE IMAGE BELOW. These guys have ads all over their website and the giant “Download” button is one of them.

Congratulations on completing this tutorial on how to download free music from the internet! Please keep in mind that you should check with your local authorities about the legislation in your for downloading copyright material from the internet.

Most governments are now trying to spy on citizens through the internet and there is a big movement against this happening all over the world. As stated earlier, if you would like to privatize your internet connection so that those guys don’t know what you’re doing, please consider a private VPN.

How to Download Free Music via Torrents

Disclaimer: This posting is purely for educational purposes and I do not condone or promote downloading of illegal content. Please check your country’s laws for downloading and uploading copyright materials.

So you want to have a large library of music, but you do not want to pay for it and you do not want to download each song individually? Then this tutorial is for you.

This is what you will need to begin:

Now that you have the appropriate software, let’s get started.

1. Use your web browser to go to the website Kick Ass Torrents (https://katcr.co/ – previously www.kickasstorrents.com)

2. Type in your song or artist of choice

3. Click SEARCH!
search kick ass torrents

4. Sort your results by the type of media you are searching for (music)

5. Click the file you desire (In this example, I am choosing the discography so that I can choose from all of the songs this artist has to offer all at the same time).

6. Click the DOWNLOAD TORRENT Button to download that torrent

7. Open the downloaded file.

  1. a. Internet Explorer: by default opens a download window that asks you if you want to open the file.
  2. b. FireFox: by default shows the completed download in a pop-up window
  3. c. Google Chrome: by default shows the completed download near the bottom of the screen (double click on it)

open torrent file

8. Your computer will open the file using your default torrent program. Click “SELECT NONE” button to ensure that you do not download all of the music files (we only checkbox the songs that you WANT).
select none torrents

9. If your torrent contains multiple folders, you can click on the plus “+” symbol beside the folder to view the contents of the folder.

10. Within the folders you will see a bunch of files. Check mark the ones you want. DO NOT FORGET TO CHECK THE OTHER FOLDERS BEFORE YOU FINISH (you want to get all the songs at once, it’s way easier, trust me.)
select free songs

SIDE NOTE: Sometimes torrents include album art files, torrent source files, etc. If you want JUST MUSIC, you want to select ONLY “.mp3” files. If you cannot see the file type (at the end of the file description), simple drag the line to the right to reveal more (SEE THE LITTLE RED LINE IN THE IMAGE BELOW)

11. Click OK to start downloading!

I’m sure from here you can figure out from the progress bar that you can see all of your different torrent downloads and how far along they are…

Feel free to contact me via email if you can’t figure this out: sillytechi3@gmail.com

Happy Torrenting!
