New Harry Potter Book Available for download on BitTorrent

Too bad, I’m a big fan of Harry Potter, someone took digital photographs of every page and released on BitTorrent:

The final book in the Harry Potter series has been leaked to BitTorrent. A torrent with photographs of each page of the American edition of “Deathly Hallows” has shown up on multiple BitTorrent sites. The main complaint that’s coming up in comment threads on these sites is that the quality isn’t great. You can just barely manage to read each page. And as some downloaders promptly noted, a few pages cannot be read at all without editing the images in Photoshop.

I’ve not download but quality is not so good. Another thing is I always enjoy reading while sleeping or Sunday afternoon. I only read technical books or howtos online using digital format. One of my friends downloaded the same just to read it before print copy. He is also going to buy the same when it will hit local stores.

One night @ call center

I have heard a lot about this book so my brother ashish brought book for us. First, it is a fiction work and not based upon true story.

The book is all about problems that most of us face in day today life (no matter if you work in call center or not). The book is all about young people who work in call center. Most of them face some sort of problem (girlfriend/boyfriend, money, no job guaranty, clients from US blaming/bashing (overrated) all Indian workers blah blah). In order to get rid of problem God calls them and guides them. Nothing to new, here if you have IT industry background or you worked in a call center. However, book has one good point how to get rid of your day today life problem, if you are stuck in such situation in life then read the book ( however if you are really stuck in life then you should read Bhagwat gita to solve all mysteries of life, IMPO)

In short, book is little over heaped and only useful if

  • You wanna kill your Sunday afternoon
  • If you never worked in BPO/IT industry they you will get some idea about work culture of small BPOs (please note that big BPOs in India follows very good work culture)
  • You wanna find out answer to some your problem in life in funny reading
