I'm looking for a couple of magazines and this site came up on a search offering free downloads of the issues I want.

Has anyone used this site? It tells you to download some software before getting the magazines. Is the download software OK?

And is this a legal action? I was looking to pay for the old titles but this site says they are free. Worried that it's a pirate site with Trojan horse software!!

It states quite clearly on the site that it does not host ebooks, simply searches the internet for links.
Not legal, not safe.

Which magazine are you interested in?

Thanks for the reply. I thought as much - something for nothing - always rings alarm bells.

It's knitting I'm interested in! It had a couple of american titles on there that cost a lot to ship over and I wanted one back issue in particular. I usually wait for them to come up on ebay but sometimes that takes ages.
Have you tried the specialist websites? Googling bought up a few, like this one

Aah, thanks for taking the time. I've got hundreds of freebie knitting websites in my bookmark - you can never have enough!

Have now gone ahead and bought the digital version of the magazine issue I was looking for, for a mere £3.50 as opposed to £17.50 which is what it would have cost me to have a hard copy sent over from the States.

Should keep me out of mischief for a while.
