Are you looking for some good alternatives to the lost library.nu, legalreads.com or coinread.com?
Well, here is a list that I update whenever you (yes, you!) give me new entries (via messages or emails)!
Presently, many of you reach this page searching words like "en.bookfi.org alternatives", "library.nu alternatives" or "ebookoid", well I am not sure this will be the case also in the near future... :(
Due to the new guidelines against piracy, this post COULD NOT be listed among the search results you'll get from Google and/or Bing. For this reason, I suggest you to save this page as bookmark in your browser, if you want to be always able to reach it :)

The best library.nu alternatives ...

will update this post!

Remember that piracy is a crime and keep in mind that knowledge requires time, work and money so it must have a (reasonable) cost!!!
Buy always the books you need, if it can help you, consider their prices in terms of "cocktail ", "beer", "wine", "nutella-can" or "whatever-you-are-addicted-to" units...
I mean you can always (yes, always!!!) save money for a good book if you cut some nonessential expenses like the aforementioned alcoholic stuff... Just a suggestion!
Just a reminder...
Here is a very good repository with FREE scientific material and it is 100 % legal!
... other useful tips ...
Do not forget that, sometimes, you can get a very cheap copy of your book on Amazon, eBay or AbeBooks. Just try it!
"If a man empties his purse into his head no one can take it away from
him. An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest."
