Excellent Site For Free eBooks – PDF Drive

From the PDF site –

PDF Drive is your search engine for PDF files. As of today we have 48,168,883 eBooks for you to download for free. No annoying ads, no download limits, enjoy it and don’t forget to bookmark and share the love.

My 2 cents –

I found this site quite useful when recently looking for an ebook on Microsoft Access. No need to sign up for anything, no need to give them an email address, just download any ebooks you like. I found 3 titles that fit my Access needs. I was able to download 2 of the 3, the third one was no longer available. I noticed that many of the “For Dummies” ebooks are available. Be aware that when you click on the “Download PDF” button and a progress bar appears, that the PDF is not yet being downloaded. You must wait for the blue progress bar to finish and the click the green “Go To PDF” button.

Go to PDF Drive.

FreeFile Review – PDF-XChange Viewer

FFR-WP-logopdfxcPDF-XChange Viewer is much more than a PDF viewer; it allows editing of PDFs and performs OCR (optical character recognition). These features in a free program are unique. PDF-XChange Viewer is Windows only. A paid version, with additional features, is also available. Most users will be very happy with the free version .
Pluses include – lightning fast performance when opening and viewing PDFs, ability to add comments, text highlighting, a full set of drawing tools, and OCR. It integrated seamlessly as the default PDF viewer for Firefox. The Preferences Panel offers an incredible selection of options for tweaking the program’s appearance and operation. The program’s interface is attractive. All the basic controls are similar to other PDF viewer programs, so there are no surprises for the basic operations. An extensive help file is available for the more advanced operations.
The only negative that I could find was that saving is limited to PDF or export as image.
– – – – The Bottom Line – – – –
It performed flawlessly for the past two months on my Windows 7 PC as the default PDF viewer. I enthusiastically recommend PDF-XChange Viewer as a replacement for Adobe Acrobat Reader or for whatever PDF viewer that you are currently using. Get PDF-XChange Viewer today and be rid of Adobe Acrobat Reader forever.
