More and more pirating-websites pop up that offer free downloads of thousands of e-books. That is of course good news for readers, but for writers this is far less good. Books that were written with a lot of effort and in a lot of time are also offered for free there. Please respect the hard work and dedication of an author and stay away from those sites. If you can’t afford a book, get in touch with the author and explain, often they are willing to send you a free copy.
