In what format?

Physical - Library or Amazon / book store
EPUB / AZW3 - not a website called b-ok.cc because that's illegal, so Amazon
PDF - also not b-ok, and also not by downloading them off google searches

So long as the books are free, who cares if they are illegal? Not everyone can afford to buy books.

Don't be soft. Buying books is obviously the right thing to do, but some cost a bomb, and can be found on the internet for free.

Go to the library or buy a kindle or borrow one from school or a friend or buy one from a bookshop or WHSMith or Sainsbury’s

I'm a fan of getting them illegally. Lots of sites exist. If I like what I see I then buy a physical copy, usually second hand if it's a lot cheaper but it tends to be new.

I also don't use zlibrary, and I also haven't heard of using a free 'Internet Relay Chat' to try to find the more obscure books. r/piracy I've heard is very useful for finding almost anything, but I wouldn't know...

Be more Liberal about piracy. We're in a digital age and they're charging the same for e-Books as physical ones, at least mostly for academia, and it's not exactly a modern evolution in pricing structure.

Stick it to the book bourgeoisie and pirate away! Although I do recommend buying physical copies if you like what you see, since paper feels great.
