Just got an email from these guys saying their domain has changed again to: https://z-lib.id/

Login works as usual however, no downloads were available unless you had a premium account. Went through the steps and it asked for $25 which didn't seem too bad for a "lifetime account".

I guess it just lasts as long as the site remains online for so I reckon I have enough reading material for a while yet.

I'd like to read After Hastings, an alternate history novel by Steven H Silver (Harold wins the Battle of Hastings), but I can't find it on Z library, Anna's archive or Pirate Bay. It's available on Amazon for over £30, but I don't want to read it that much... :shock:

Can any of you Internet whizzes help? I think it's fairly recent, so I might just have to wait.

No Internet whizz... but when it comes to free dodgy downloads, I consider myself quite knowledgeable. Can't find it myself.

It's not on any of the huge usenet e-book groups either, sorry.

Has anyone used z-library lately? I have been using it for years but today it won't let me download anything unless I have there Premium account. So I tried to get the Premium account but I am unable to register. I know a few of you have used z-library but do any of you have the Premium account?

Used it without a problem a couple of days ago, the difference being that instead of downloading books directly on to my computer, it sends them as an attachment to my email address. I have a basic (free) account, with a daily download limit of 10 books. Just checked and there's no change today.

Whats the latest reliable domain name? There are so many fakes/scams, and the asia.se site has been seized.
