As far as the story goes, yes, I did pay for them as a download (I can't remember how much ). I found the infamous blog where I got them from too. I am lucky I never ordered them in book form, cause I have heard people weren't too happy when they never received them. They said it was a scam. Some people even became affiliates lol.
Now you can read them and do what I did : send them to a print shop    [i.e: UPS]. Here is what I got :

The Interior castle

The Cloud of Unknowing - Anonymous

Confessions - St.Augustine of Hippo

Imitation of Christ 0.1 - Thomas a Kempis

Imitation of Christ - Thomas a Kempis

The Seven Authentic Epistles of St.Ignatius of Antioch

The Little Flowers of St.Francis of Assisi - Brother Ugolino

Story of a Soul - St. Therese of Lisieux

Abandonment to Divine Providence - Jean Pierre De Caussade

Introduction to the Devout Life - St.Francis de Sales

True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary - St. Louis de Montfort

There are 11 books , supposed to be 10 but I have two on the Imitation of Christ as you can see . They aren't the same . Here is a sample of what Acrobat looks like .


I have had my account for more than a month and it seems to still be working lol . I think it's safe to say it's free , although if you want the upgrade you will have to pay . Anyway I really like the handy gadget and the best part is you can share it with everybody!
Lol sorry about the updates guys , but here is what google docs looks like. (I'm having too much fun :)

Another UPDATE: Please share them with others on your blog or website . Get the word out! Thanks .


  1. What you have done with your blog is amazing!

    Your books on PDF...Wow!!!!

    I have done "Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary", St. Louis de Montfort, so that book really caught my eye! Now I am doing it for one of my children, I know that might sound odd, but I feel the Blessed Mother understands.

    I hope you don't mind, but I am going to share the youtube video on my blog soon and I will share where I got it from :)

    God Bless ~ DG

  2. Hi! Thank you and you're welcome ! you mean the book "True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary - St. Louis de Montfort" ?
