Free Downloads

The files below are in .pdf format. Most browsers allow you to view the file just by clicking on the link. To download and read them you will need Adobe Reader which is free and safe to install and use on your computer. Please note that some of these files are quite large. You should have a fast internet connection to download the larger ones. Some of the books are saved in a manner that allows them to be printed on your printer (on both sides of the paper) folded and read like a book.

Also... The pdf reader you may have attached to your browser (which can open the file when you click on the link to the file) may not work properly for all files, it may need to be upgraded or you might have to download the file and open it with Adobe reader. Mozilla Firefox has a download arrow in the upper right of the reader screen and Internet Explorer has an icon that looks like an adding machine (go figure!).
