Today we have 3 updates on the agenda. The first update is for Kindle users. As you know, epub files are not available for sending to the Kindle, but we listened to your suggestions and made it possible to convert epub and send it to your Kindle. To do this, use the button next to the "Download" and select the format you need. There will be 2 options: download the file or send it to the Kindle. However, remember that for the conversion option there is a limitation on the file size: no more than 5 Mb.
Today we want to announce the successful completion of the fundraising and introduce 3 updates. First, our team wants to thank all of you for active participation in the fundraising campaign. The goal was successfully achieved! It should be reminded that users who have supported us during this period received 1 month of unlimited downloads. Congrats!
And the first update we want to tell you is the improved version of the book uploader. Now you can upload many files at once! After uploading a file, you need to fill in the necessary information about the book and add a cover. Allowed formats are txt, pdf, fb2, epub, lit, lrf, mobi, odt, rtf, snb, djv, djvu, azw3, azw. Finally, large files can be uploaded too. As this feature is still under development so some small problems may occur. But we will try to fix it as soon as possible.
The second update related to the option send to Kindle. We want to draw your attention that our address has changed so you need to re-add our new address to the While list on your kindle. You will find the address at this link (for example, email@example.com). To make it easier to start using this option we have created a special page with the instructions .
What’s up? We have a lot of news to share!
As you already know, we have recently started additional fundraising campaign. So what is it? We hold this event 2 times a year (September and March) to our project maintenance and development. During this period you can get access to unlimited downloads for 31 days for any donation! Only thanks to your support over the past year we have made such improvements as Full-text search, ZAlerts, Terms, Books correction feature, “Save for later” option, Recommender system and much more. Thank you for giving us such support!
Now let's talk about the updates. We decided to provide our users with the ability to moderate newly uploaded books. This will significantly reduce the number of problem books! So on the Moderation page (at the top of the page next to your nickname) you can vote for a book: OK if the book is suitable for our library, BAD if there are any problems. Please note this option works in the test mode and available only for some "active" users.
Hi there! Our website is finally recovered after a server crash. We were very pleased to receive so many letters and comments with words of support during this difficult period. Thank you for that (and special thanks for X and Librarian from LG project for your help in restoring)!
Unfortunately, not all files were recovered (but we successfully restored more than 99.8% of our collection) and about 13 thousand books were lost... but don't worry, we have most of these books in other formats. So now we need your help. We have created a page that displays the current list of irretrievably lost books. If you have something from the list - please upload it to our library. Also, do not be surprised if your limit suddenly decreases (as you remember we doubled the limit only for the recovery period).
So, we continue to acquaint you with the new updates on our site. The most curious users may have noticed and tried out our new feature named “Terms”. Terms are the most important words/concepts or phrases found in the text of the book. Using terms you can quickly understand the book contents.
Hello! First of all, our Team wants to thank all users for your support! On July 20 we had a major server crash and many books and covers were damaged. Some services like Online reader and File conversion may work unstably. The recovery of all data will take up to 2 weeks (you can track the recovery process on the main page). So we came to the decision at this time to double the download limits for all users until the problem is completely resolved.
We get a lot of suggestions for help in uploading missed books and we really appreciate it. Do not worry, we have all the files but to restore it will take some time.
And about the good news: today we will tell you about the new option for correcting book information.
Thanks to your letters and comments we learn about errors in the description of books (for example, incorrect title, author, cover and etc.). Before we did not have the opportunity to edit such information but now it is possible. Unfortunately, we can’t check every book so we’ll need your help. Now if you notice that the information about the book is incorrect or completely absent you can offer us your correction option by clicking on the “Suggest a correction” button (see the screenshot below).
Hi there! Today we want to introduce to you our new option named “Save for later”. We have received a lot of letters from you with requests to make it possible to mark books for downloading it later. But we did not only that but even more. Let’s see. So, to save your favourite book you need to go to the book page and click on the “Save for later” button. Just one click and it is saved to your profile. You can check all your saved books in the Profile menu “Saved books” tab.
Today we will tell you about our important new updates. Let's start! First of all, we want to share the good news: 1 million of fiction books were added to the library! Gradually our book collection is growing and it's great!
Also in addition to the Recommended books section, we added the “Most Popular” section. There you can find books that were most often downloaded by other users. Maybe among these books, you will find the one you have long wanted to read? Btw, this section updates every day.
We want to start with the words of gratitude to all users who were not indifferent and supported our project. More than 2,700 people from different parts of the world made a donation and helped us collect the necessary amount and even more. Our team is very grateful to you, for us it is a very big responsibility. Also users who made a donation from 15.03 to 01.04 will get access to unlimited downloads for 30 days. Thank you very much for using our library and for inspiring us with new ideas!
And now about the updates. In the Recently added category, we also sorted books by categories. You can immediately see the new books on the topic that interests you. As usual, this option is in the upper right corner.
Less than a month passed and we have already prepared 3 new updates!
Let's start with the most important one - the conversion of books. This option allows you to change the file format just in one click and download directly to your computer. It is located next to the "download" button (see the screenshot). After you select the file format you need to wait 1-2 minutes and then downloading link will appear (no need to reload the page and repeatedly click on the download button). So far, only books with 'epub', 'fb2', 'pdf', 'mobi', 'txt', 'rtf' format and no more than 5 MB are available for conversion. We also warn that the converted file may differ from the original.
The next update we want to tell you about is sorting the search results.
We would like to present our new and important update. About 2 weeks ago we launched a download recommendation system. The book page now displays other books that may also be useful and interesting for you.
You can have a look at the first results of the system, for example, on these books:
We started collecting statistics only a little more than 2 weeks ago, so recommendations are available only for a limited list of books (just over 100,000 at the time of publication). Over time, the number of books containing recommendations will grow.
