Download Any Book from Google Book Search hack

Google Book Search Logo Google Book Search searches the full text of books that Google scans, converts to text and stores in its digital database of over 7 million books and expanding. Google Book Search allows public-domain works and other out-of-copyright material to be downloaded in PDF format. Where as all the other content is only available for limited preview.

Google Book Downloader is a small windows application to download any book including the limited preview books using several proxies and merge the images in a PDF file. Google Book Downloader will only retrieve the pages that are available online, so you won’t be able to download entire books in most cases. The application requires .NET Framework 3.5 SP1.  Itโ€™s a little buggy, just follow the below steps to download the whole book, but itโ€™s going to take some time since it reads and downloads the book page by page.

  • Download GoogleBookDownloader and Run application.
  • Paste the book id of the book you want to download.
  • Press "Check" button. Book will be checked and all available pages will be retrieved.
  • Press "Download entire book" button. All available pages will be downloaded. It can take a while.
  • Press "Save entire book as…" button. All downloaded pages will be saved. It can take a while.

  5. if it works good google will not leave it here for every one to download it

  6. 15 of 320 pages so far… lets see how long this takes. Anyone knows how long google temporarily blocks your ip if you have browsed the book to many times?

  7. The download link isn’t working for me. I can’t download GoogleBookDownloaders ! Help plz ๐Ÿ™‚

    my winxp ie doesn’t seem to save them as .png – i can see them because i can see the book ID and there’s a file for each page… but the long filename thing ends with ‘click3’ and I can’t find any way to open it so’s it becomes a page of text…

    and i tried the google book downloader (you’ve got to look around a fair bit on the web to find where you can get it) and it worked alright for 1 page at a time – and I don’t think it will get the missing pages from a preview.

    anyone know of anything better – or anyway to recover the page from the IE ‘click3’ entries?
