This is the very expensive list of books I need for my thesis research :blobcry:

I'm distance learning and not on campus so I don't have a nearby academic library to access them.

I know this is a long shot but does anyone have any of these that I can purchase second hand?

Thanks I'll love you forever :blob_blowing_kiss:

Please boost if you can as there may be some secret marketers in your followers!

If I can manage to get them, I plan to give them to another student next year for free because the price of education is just wrong

I now have one thanks to a very kind friend ❤️

15 to go 🙄

I now have downloads of some of them but I'd still love a paper copy if anyone has one as I find them easier to read from 😊

@dockers I'm a student in Manchester so if I can get you anything from the library or whatever, let me know?

@dockers a quick glance and I already found a couple of these on here, see how many you can get for free before you poor money into the corporate machine.

@dockers I researched all titles on Libgen for you and pasted the links into this Pastebin:

@dockers also... The Imperial library of Trantor is only accacible via TOR, but has a shit lot of free academic ebooks 😎

@NHonigdachs also I don't have a laptop, only a work PC! so I have to be careful what I access.

@dockers Sometimes you can just ASK your librarian and they will use the librarys budget to buy the books you want to lend....🤷

@NHonigdachs I'm in a village with a tiny library that is close to closing and no academic section 😂 looking to see if I can get a pass to a uni library closer to home

@dockers Did you check the availability of a interlibrary loan? In Germany I could loan books by a library system or post, even if my local one, did not have this books. You just have to ask or do some phone calls. However take care of your study. I am sure you will done this right.
