“Why aren't you in school? I see you every day wandering around."
"Oh, they don't miss me," she said. "I'm antisocial, they say. I don't mix. It's so strange. I'm very social indeed. It all depends on what you mean by social, doesn't it? Social to me means talking to you about things like this." She rattled some chestnuts that had fallen off the tree in the front yard. "Or talking about how strange the world is. Being with people is nice. But I don't think it's social to get a bunch of people together and then not let them talk, do you? An hour of TV class, an hour of basketball or baseball or running, another hour of transcription history or painting pictures, and more sports, but do you know, we never ask questions, or at least most don't; they just run the answers at you, bing, bing, bing, and us sitting there for four more hours of film-teacher. That's not social to me at all. It's a lot of funnels and lot of water poured down the spout and out the bottom, and them telling us it's wine when it's not. They run us so ragged by the end of the day we can't do anything but go to bed or head for a Fun Park to bully people around, break windowpanes in the Window Smasher place or wreck cars in the Car Wrecker place with the big steel ball. Or go out in the cars and race on the streets, trying to see how close you can get to lampposts, playing 'chicken' and 'knock hubcaps.' I guess I'm everything they say I am, all right. I haven't any friends. That's supposed to prove I'm abnormal. But everyone I know is either shouting or dancing around like wild or beating up one another. Do you notice how people hurt each other nowadays?”
― Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451
If you desire freedom, you must perform the mental work necessary to understand reality for yourself. There is no other way. I cannot offer you occult knowledge of the ultimate secrets of the universe, nor can anyone else. Those who pretend to possess such knowledge are either dupes or charlatans. The acceptance of their lies will only serve to pollute and enslave your mind.
The path to mental liberation is one of casting off chains, freeing your mind of limiting and pernicious beliefs. Many of these harmful ideas were innocently absorbed through contact with other deceived individuals. Others were intentionally programmed into you by church, state, and family through calculated indoctrination. The good news is that, regardless of age, education or social position, you possess the ability to free your mind of lies, dogma and limiting concepts, if you dare to use it.
"One had to cram all this stuff into one's mind whether one liked it or not. This coercion had such a deterring effect that, after I passed the final examination, I found the consideration of any scientific problems distasteful to me for an entire year."
"Just because you have colleges and universities doesn't mean you have education. The colleges and universities in the American education system are skillfully used to mis-educate."

You can also try googling phrases like 'textbook/book title .torrent' or 'textbook/book title .pdf' or 'textbook/book title ebook' or anything along those lines if you are getting desperate, but beware of malware, viruses, etc.

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:
