It seems as though torrentz.com/torrentz.eu has been taken down. :(

It appears it's time to tank up as much as possible on books and movies. Dey're fixing do away with free stuff.
Coupla thou movies and few thou books'll come in handy in ones own drives one of dese days.

"Torrentz, Largest Torrent Search Engine, Shuts Down

Two weeks after U.S. authorities seized and shut down Kickass Torrents (KAT), the world’s largest website for sharing torrents, the peer-to-peer sharing community was dealt another blow this week. Torrentz.eu, the largest search engine for torrents, shut down without any notice or explanation."

There was a web forgery alert issued about 5 or 6 months ago.


"Firefox listed a Web Forgery alert on the Kickass homepage, adding only that “web forgeries are designed to trick you into revealing personal or financial information by imitating sources you may trust. Entering any information on this web page may result in identity theft or other fraud.”

D'oh! The page was up when I copied the URL to paste here. But it didn't work. I missed the 1 line 'good bye' message saying the site was history.

Torrentz.me also redirects to a phishing site so be careful. Since the demise of KAT and Torrentz there have been a lot of fake copycat websites (including the one I posted above) that are quite dangerous. https://torrentfreak.com/torrentz-gone- ... ll-160806/

Just tried these two which (despite a lot of annoying popup ads) seem to work:
http://extratorrent.cc
http://www.idope.se

If anyone has any more (reliable ones that are not viral) please share.

The classic: https://thepiratebay.org/. Between that and extratorrent I've found what I wanted.

I agree 100% Homer Pirate Bay gives all I want be it Music, Ebooks or Movies ( although not enough time really for the latter)

I forgot about this site because their torrents are also found on other sites. On their site it's only their torrents: https://eztv.ag/. Limited to American TV.

I use this site a lot and I find British shows on there. Seems to be not as reliable as it used to be though - just had a gap of 2 days worth of programmes. Find that rarbg.to is more reliable these days, but the presentation isn't as good as eztv.

Had a quick look at the above for some books earlier and the site turned up 80% of what I was looking for which is good news as Pirate Bay seems to be under constant maintenance when I try to download stuff. I just get a message to check back in 10 minutes.
