How to download google books
Recently I have found a way to download Google books, which I am sharing here, this is for educational purpose only(for google too!!) After extensive searching I found three ways, two of them no longer works or didn't work for me, first is a software called Google book downloader which is suppose to download books in PDF format, I tried its recent GBD-0.1.0.alpha8 version but it didn't work for me, second I tried a website leechvideo which again didn't work. Idea which worked successfully is this First of all you need Firefox, IE doesnt work Then install add on Greasemonkey , search through firefox add on, you should easily find this, it allows you to run various screepts through your browser, which can modify appearance of websites, after complete installation icon will appear on lower right of your browser Now you will need a script called [ Userscript ] Google Book Downloader, after installing this script whenever you will open the google books site, you will find a download button on upper right hand corner, click on it, it will list all the availabe pages of the books Then one last plugin called FlashGot, this will download all the pages you have selected, just rignt click after selecting the pages and then click FlashGot Selected, or click FlashGot all for all pages
TRAPS IN this method: there are few points where you might get trapped, dont try to install userscript before installing greasymonkey dont search for books from www.google.com, because links generated is not compatible with this method, rather go direcly to http://books.google.com
