Magic ebooksOur primary love and focus is magic. This is where Lybrary.com started many years ago and it is where we put most of our focus in terms of acquiring exclusive contents and publishing our own textbooks and study aids. We have literally hundreds of download products you will not find anywhere else. This includes exclusive publications by universally respected performers like Dai Vernon, Bob Cassidy, Roberto Giobbi, Allan Ackerman, and Luke Jermay to name just a few. If you aspire to become the next David Copperfield, Lance Burton, David Blaine, Criss Angel, or Harry Houdini, then you would be well advised to study the many excellent ebooks we offer. And we don't stop at ebooks. You can download dozens of MP3 audio files, hundreds of MP4 video clips and many apps for your iPhone or iPod. We also have a growing selection of software to help you become the best magician you can be.
Once part of our magic community you will have access to our Magic Knowledge Base, a full text search engine which will give you access to close to a million pages of content. This search engine is fully integrated with the body of ebooks you purchased. If one of your search results is in an ebook you already bought, you have full text access to this ebook through your browser and you can exchange comments with other customers and sometimes even with the author. All your ebook purchases are automatically added to your personal digital-shelf from where you can either view your ebooks or download them.
The digital-shelf has four primary functions:
- Safety Backup: Should you loose your ebooks for example due to hard disc failure or a computer crash, you can re-download your purchases. You do not need to ask anybody or get permission. You simply login to your Lybrary.com account, proceed to your digital-shelf and download your purchases. Problem solved.
- Online Access: There are times when you might not have your computer with you, or when you cannot download anything on your computer (for example when you are on a public computer, or in the armed services). No problem at all. You can access your ebooks through any web-browser. You can search and browse, and even print pages.
- Information exchange with others: The digital-shelf has a commenting feature where you can add a comment or question to any particular page. Other customers who have purchased the same ebook can read your comments and respond, answer questions, and upload an image. Sometimes even the author of the ebook will be answering. This feels and behaves like a little forum.
- Personal Digital Library: Build your own personal digital library. The digital-shelf automatically includes all your ebook purchases. This is a convenient way to build up your personal digital library. You can quickly check which ebooks you already bought. And as mentioned above, you can even view and search many of them.
Cheating at the card table, at craps or other casino games has a lot to do with the techniques magicians use and vice versa. Our product line is therefore particularly strong in the game protection field. And we have the very best in strategy and skill development for all major casino games for money. You will be able to read about various forms of poker be it draw, stud, Texas Hold'em, Omaha or other varieties. You will learn everything you need to know about craps, blackjack, roulette, keno, and the list continues. On top of that we have fascinating fiction depicting gamblers of all sorts and their stories.
We offer a growing selection in contract bridge, chess, sudoku, and crossword. For example we have several exclusive contract bridge ebooks by Eddie Kantar and Marty Bergen. We are also working on adding ebooks on other games and in particular computer games. We are always happy to get suggestions and leads to interesting (e)books.
We are adding new ebooks on a daily basis in all categories, and have already thousands of the most recent ebooks available. We are putting an emphasis on Computer, Engineering and Technology, Business ebooks, True Crime and Performing Arts. Let us know which subject areas you are particularly interested in and we promise to provide more ebooks in those.
Similar as with the Non-Fiction category, we have thousands of ebooks available and are adding every day new ones. We are placing an emphasis on Mystery & Detective, Thriller, and Romance. Our philosophy is to slowly add ebooks and categorize them well, rather than to flood the shop with all available ebooks as other retailers have chosen to do. You can then find all kinds of problems with the descriptions, from misspelled author names to wrong cover images and outright wrong description or categorization. Of course, we are not free of such errors, but we hope that we have a lot less than others.
