The uploaders are still here (I was one), we're just not uploading anymore. If you mean where else can you find free ebooks, try Mobilism, Booklending, 4shared, 2shared, Veryebooks, Ebubbud, Chomikuj, or Demonoid.

These sites allow ebook hosting? Or just links to ebooks hosted on other sites?

If these sites allow links to ebooks hosted on other sites then I see no reason why we can't do it as well. They are much bigger sites and rules should be same for us and them.

Note: At the moment drypen's comment holds, we will consider sharing links with new site rules.

I think they do. I actually look at drpgroup.org and I found this: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login on their Board FAQ. And they do have books too: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

You also have to member and they have required number of posts before you see their links, etc.

In my country, there's also an ebook sharing site. Though its not all ebooks. They also have animes, movies, games, etc where you can download it either in the site or they post MF links.

I think only tehparadox is in the US. The other ones can share because they aren't in the US anyways.

Thank you so much, Jennell! Your links were really helpful. I was crushed when e-book sharing was halted and I had a lot of trouble finding one of the books that used to be listed here. I was able to find it on one of your listed sites. Totally made my week! :)

I've tried using some of those sites but you have to have a minimum number of posts & I can't seem to reply to post to anything b/c again I don't have enough posts...It seems to be a crazy vicious cycle....  Uh!

I have tried superiorz and they don't let you reply unless you have one post, so I created it, and then all links worked for me

I've used dpgroup, superiorz, mobilism, viprasys and in all these sites members upload links to the other downloading sites. I wish at least we could do the same here if not uploading the books directly because these sites are doing the same then why not PTS also? & I agree with you. Even if some of them are pretty big sites then STP but I always found books here rather than those site many times.

I've also used forum.mininova.org where members put requests in the posts & if any member has it they just PM each other with the link of other downloading site. I think this technique is more effective.

We are fine with both of these options, we have discontinued ebook hosting, sharing links to other sites is fine.
