These last few are sort of specialized eBook private trackers, google them for some info.

If you don’t know how to use IRC to download books, check out this link or read this:
You obviously need an IRC client installed, a quick google search should find you a bunch of decent free ones.
Load the client and then type:
This will connect you to the irchighway server. Once you’re on there, type:
This will take you into the ebooks channel, which has more than 2.2Terabytes of ebooks for free download. Once you’re in, all you have to do to find what you want is to simply type:
@search “Author or book title”
… removing the inverted commas.
You’llget a message saying that your search has been accepted. A few seconds later a searchbot will offer you a file, so accept the download. That will send you a .txt file that’s zipped. Extract that and you’ll get a list of files. I searched for Lian Hearn and got a list of 147 files. Here’s an extract from it:
!bald Lian Hearn – [Tales Of The Otori 02] – Grass For His Pillow .rar – 142.1 KB
!bald Lian Hearn – Tales of the Otori 2 – Grass for His Pillow (CO.rar – 355.3 KB

!bald Lian Hearn – [Tales Of the Otori 05] – Heaven’s Net Is Wide (v5.0) (epub).rar – 588.40 KB
Say I wanted to download the first book. I’d copy the text shown below, deliberately removing the file size information (I’ve been booted for that before ):
!bald Lian Hearn – [Tales Of The Otori 02] – Grass For His Pillow .rar
Then just paste that into the IRC window then press enter. After 2-3 seconds you get a prompt asking you to accept or decline the file.You know how to do the rest.
Then there are a few .i2p and .onion sites that have ebooks:
