Get Free E-books from ‘E-booksX’


I’ve just browsed through Internet for downloading E-books for my IT Programming course. And finally, I’ve got to see this Website Site. It’s a very good to site to get E-books, not only Programming, but also on other topics Like- Literature, Humor, Tutorials etc. etc. In short, It’s a place where you could find E-books on various topics by many renowned authors and publishers.

Recently I began to buy eBooks for the Kindle application on my iPad. While I still love paper books, the digital wiles of eBooks are looking increasingly attractive to me. Below are five eBook features that may tempt you to buy electronic books too.

I should note that I wasn’t a hold-out on eBooks for moral reasons. I simply couldn’t access them until recently. Amazon’s Kindle, Sony’s Reader and Barnes & Noble’s Nook have all been either unavailable to people outside the US, or the eBook stores to populate them have been inaccessible. However with the Kindle for iPad, I’ve finally been able to enjoy the forbidden fruit of eBooks.

Moreover, You’ve got certain reasons to prefer E-books better than normal Paper Books. Here they are as follows :-

1. Social Highlighting

I must add that one thing I miss about paper books is the personal touch, for example receiving a book from a friend with their marked up highlights. By contrast, there’s something a bit impersonal about electronic highlighting. But perhaps eBooks will evolve to enable more personal sharing of highlights, perhaps even mimicing your hand writing style.Being able to highlight quotes and passages and easily find them again is a key feature that eBooks have over paper books. This activity can also be social – Audrey Watters pointed me to an Amazon Kindle page featuring the most highlighted passages of all time.

2. Notes

The ability to create and then easily display archived notes is a big plus for eBooks. Instead of scribbling in small writing in the margins of a paper book, you can type a clear note in your eReader.

3. Look-up of words

I recently bought a few books of poetry in the Kindle Store. Readers of poetry will know that modern poets like to use big and esoteric words. So one feature I have really enjoyed over the past week is tapping a word and having the definition displayed below. Very helpful and something that made me thankful I had the eBook version of the poetry.

4. Ability to Tweet & Facebook quotes

@Tooq commented via Twitter that he/she likes the ability to tweet or send to Facebook quotes from books, on the Kindle. This feature was introduced to Amazon Kindle 2.5 at the end of April.

5. Search

You can search for topics or keywords inside your eBook, or out on the Web. Similar to the word look-up feature, this is something that augments the reading experience.

Most of these features are just the tip of the iceberg of what eBooks are capable of. As ReadWriteWeb’s Curt Hopkins opined yesterday, “the e-book format has inherent multimedia possibilities: trailers, background and reference materials, interviews, actors reciting the poems the book contains.”

Those multimedia features probably need to come from publishers, rather than eReader manufacturers.

In the meantime, let us know in the comments what your current favorite eBook features are. Or are you still a paper book hold-out?

I must recommend to you to JOIN this one for sure. Though You’ve to fetch some MONEY initially for that cause it’s not for FREE 😛 Still, It’s cool.

Sometimes, It might not Run properly or even would be unable to Run. So therefore, After Downloading and Installing Turbo C++ complier in your System, We now require a DosBox Software, which is capable of running Turbo C++ Complier in Windows 7 64-Bit format very easily.

Installation of DosBox in Windows 7

1. Install the software DOSBox ver 0.73 :Download from here

2. Run the DOSBox 0.73 from the icon located on the desktop:

3. Type the following commands at the command prompt

[Z]: mount d c:\Turbo\ [The folder TC is present inside the folder Turbo]

Now you should get a message which says: Drive D is mounted as a local directory c:\Turbo\

step 3 How to install Turbo C++ on Windows 7 64bit
5. Next follow the commands below:

cd tc

cd bin

tc or tc.exe [This starts you the Turbo C++ 3.0]

step 4 How to install Turbo C++ on Windows 7 64bit
6. In the Turbo C++ goto Options>Directories> Change the source of TC to the source directory [D] ( i.e. virtual D: refers to original c:\Turbo\ . So make the path change to something like D:\TC\include and D:\TC\lib respectively )

Starting TurboC++ in the DOSBox automatically:

You can save yourself some time by having DOSBox automatically mount your folders and start TurboC++:

For DOSBox versions older then 0.73 browse into program installation folder and open the dosbox.conf file in any text editor. For version 0.73 go to Start Menu and click on “Configuration” and then “Edit Configuration“. Then scroll down to the very end, and add the lines which you want to automatically execute when DOSBox starts.
Automatically mount and start Turbo C++3.0 in DOSBox ver 0.73:
step 5 How to install Turbo C++ on Windows 7 64bit
Scroll down to the very end, and add the lines:
step 6 How to install Turbo C++ on Windows 7 64bit
Those commands will be executed automatically when DOSBox starts!
Please note: For Full screen: Alt and Enter

When you exit from the DosBox [precisely when u unmount the virtual drive where Turbo C++ 3.0 has been mounted] all the files you have saved or made changes in Turbo C++ 3.0 will be copied into the source directory(The directory which contains TC folder)

PS:- Don’t use shortcut keys to perform operations in TC because they might be a shortcut key for DOSBOX also . Eg : Ctrl+F9 will exit DOSBOX rather running the code .
