What If I've Never Installed a Windows® Program Before?
I think that owning and using this program is so important to all of us, that I've created a pictorial Step-By-Step installation guide. Click to see the Guide. Just a few mouse-clicks and you're done. And even if you've never installed anything, you'll be reading great words in less than 5 minutes. And that's about 1 minute to do the installation and 4 minutes to wade through all my pictures on the page. : ) CLICK TO SEE THE GUIDE.

Top


Can I Really Download All The Titles For Free?
Yes, there is no purchase necessary, EVER. Simply register on my site and start downloading all the eBook titles you desire.

Top


What format Are The Downloads?
All the files are industry standard Zipped Text files (.TXT) that you can UnZip and then open with a Word Processor like Microsoft Word®, or WordPad or Notebook which are part of your Windows® Operating system.

Top

What About Macintosh?
You can download the Zipped text files (if you use the PC Zip compatible program), but unfortunately the FREE CD ROM will not operate on your system.

Top

Are There Really 5000 Titles On The Site And The CD?
There are more than 5000 discrete titles on the CD. 2065 titles are listed in the MAIN Table Of Contents and the others are grouped under titles such as, selected poems, selections, speeches, etc. Click to see a sample list in the expanded table of contents. Plus, many titles are documents such as the U.S. Constitution or the Code Of Hammurabi. The creators of the CD added up the titles and listed the 5000 documents or eBooks as they are called today in their total. So, here at Free Books 5000.com you get 5000 Free eBook titles, which frankly, is 'a ton' of free pages.

Top

How Do I Personalize The Classics?
It's really easy. Basically you'll be using your Word Processor to Search and Replace the people, animals and/or places that you wish to personalize with the names you choose. The results are really nothing short of incredible. I give you step-by-step instructions along with hints, tricks and tips to make it all happen. A link is burned onto the Free CD ROM. Check out my demo in the 'You Star In The Classics' LINK section of this site.

Top

Why Do I Have To Register?
Well the truth is that this site cost me a fortune to build. I'm not charging you anything, Nada, Zip. Nothing at all to use it. But, I run DAK Industries 2000, Inc., the electronics catalog company. And I figure that if you love literature, you'll love my electronics catalogs and eMail updates as well. After all I built DAK 1 up to over 4,300,000 DAKonian customers this way.
So, if you'll register to use the site, or order the Free CD, I'll start sending you my eMail electronic offerings along with more quizzes, quotations and eBook information. I WILL NOT SELL, RENT, TRADE or allow anyone to advertise to you except for my DAK Companies. So, that's the deal. You use this site for free, or get the CD and I'll hopefully sell you some electronics or some more literary offerings later. It's a big risk for me because you may never spend a dime with me, but I think it's a worthwhile gamble because it's worked for me before and I hope you're going to be so thrilled with what I give you for free that you'll want to buy something from me too. :)

How Do I Register With You?
It's easy. It's free. And remember, I won't sell, rent, or trade your name. Just click 'Register' It's the small link along the top navigation bar of any page on the site, or Click any of the Newsletter Book Icon Buttons (They're Dark Blue.) Or, fill in your name in any of the Newsletter Registration Boxes on the site. There are lots of each. I really do want you to register.

Top

How Do I Sign In?
Well, when you register, we give you a cookie so that once you're registered you can automatically access all the restricted parts of the site. But, if you're not using the computer you used when you registered and you can't access the parts of the site you want, look at The Top Navigation Bar. At the bottom right of the bar, you'll see the small link words 'Sign In'. Just click that link, fill in your eMail and password and you're back in.

Top

What If I Forget My Password?
Well it happens all the time to me. Just fill in your eMail address where I've shown you to on the 'Sign In' page and we'll eMail your password to you at the eMail address you used at registration. If it doesn't work for you, eMail us at PasswordFinder@FreeBooks5000.com including your eMail address and your name. We'll do our best to get you your password or assign you a new one.

Top

Can I Cancel/Delete/Update/My Record?
Sure, eMail us at CustomerService@FreeBooks5000.com with both your old information and your updated information.

Top

How Do I Get A DAK Catalog?
Simple, register or acquire the CD ROM. You'll get the catalog when we mail them. Plus, If you've registered for the free Site Access, the eMail Newsletter I send you will advise you of upcoming catalogs, and, you'll often get first chance to learn about new products.

Top

Why Do I Have To Pay $6.95 If I Order The Free CD?
Well, it's actually a lot of work (more than you'd think) to download your order, pack up the CD, clear your Credit Card, and get it shipped to you. The actual costs end up being very close to the $6.95 I'm charging. Interestingly, there are companies that actually sell CDs for $6.95, but they don't do all the creation and information work that I've done on this site or the work I have done and am doing to add to and improve the CD. My thought is that the more CDs that I can ship for FREE, charging just the $6.95 for P&H, the more I can spend on the site and improving the CD with tech notes, more titles and more features. That will attract more DAKonians to the DAK Newsletter. So, if I didn't charge anything at all to ship the CD, and I spent the money to input your order, pack your order and ship your order, I wouldn't be able to 'Finance' getting as many of you onto my list. And after all, that is why I've put so much effort into this site and the CD. :) I really have put a ton of time and money into the Free Books 5000.com website and into perfecting the CD to get it to this point so we can all enjoy it.

Top

Can I Order More Than 1 Copy?
Yes. You can order up to 10 copies of the incredible CD. But, I'm afraid that I still have to charge the same $6.95 each for shipping. The only way I can pull off this $6.95 deal is to ship everything the same. So, unless I find a better way, you'll get 10 packages from me if you order 10 CDs. I know it may not seem real smart to do it this way, but it really is the only way that allows me to prepack and ship so many, so fast, so cheaply. Hopefully I'll find a way to group shipments and then I'll revisit the $6.95 each P&H charge.

Hey, I Live In L.A. Why Can't I Pick Up The CD?
The Free CD is an Internet Special ONLY. Well, you'd think that it would be cheaper and easier, but it isn't. People cost money. Time is money. (Check my quotations for that one.) The only way this giveaway works is if no human touches your order. It's all automated except for the actual packing and shipping. So, if you come in and we start talking or even if we have to write down your eMail and physical address it takes forever compared to YOU filling out YOUR own information on the Internet. In short, YOU do all the work and earn the discount. And don't forget, the reason I'm giving all this away is to get your name and address so I can offer you my electronic products in the future. So, if you want the Disc, I need your name and address so use the Internet Please. We both win.

Top

You Charge $8 Extra For Phone/Mail Orders. WHY?
The Free CD is an Internet Special ONLY. Yes, I know it sounds odd. But it costs $7-$8 to take a phone order or open and process a mail order. We have to key in all your data, double check it and more. It simply costs me MUCH more than the 6.95 P&H I'm charging, Really. So, if you want to order by phone or mail, we have to charge you $8 for the CD ROM (plus California Sales tax if you live in California) because it's no longer FREE, plus the $6.95 P&H.
We want to be an Internet company and we're passing those cost savings on to you when you order over the Internet.
And, you're more likely to feel comfortable reading and responding to my eMail Newsletters if you are comfortable shopping on the Internet. And, that's why I built this site. Thank you for your understanding.

Top

Can I Order If I Live Outside The United States?
No, I'm sorry we don't ship outside of the United States at this time. However we are checking the possibilities. Please eMail your request to ForeignOrders@FreeBooks5000.com.

Top

What Is Your Return Policy?
It's simple. Try anything on our websites or catalogs and evaluate it in your own home for 30 days. Within that time, if it hasn't met or exceeded every one of your expectations, send it back. If the product you wish to return was part of a bundle of products that were sold together, you must return the entire bundle. Just return the product(s) to DAK, prepaid and insured, in unmarked condition with their original parts, instructions and the invoice (copies are fine) for a courteous refund. No prior authorization is required.

Top

What If I Need Technical Support?
There's technical support information on the CD and shipped with any product you buy from any DAK company. If you have questions about using the website that aren't answered here, eMail them to CustomerService@FreeBooks5000.com.

Top

Are The eGreeting Cards Safe To Send And Receive?
Yes. The Quotation eGreeting Cards are actually personalized web pages that we automatically create for you from the information you give us on the Free Books 5000.com site. So, the eCards are actually web pages that your friends can read and therefore it's just as safe as simply surfing the Net. We do send an eMail informing your friend where the web page is located. But, there are never any attachments to the eMail. So, this eCard system is as safe and virus free as surfing the web for you and your friends.

Top

What if my computer won't play the quizzes and eCards?
Well, I've designed and optimized the pages to be as Browser friendly as possible. If you're using Internet Explorer 4+ or Netscape Navigator 4+ and you don't have your cookies disabled, you shouldn't have any problems. If you do, eMail us at CustomerService@FreeBooks5000.com and we'll try to figure out what's wrong. If you're using something other than Internet Explorer 4+ or Netscape Navigator 4+, chances are it will work, but if it doesn't, there's probably not much we can do. But note, we find that you can usually load one of these 2 browsers on your computer and use it for times when whatever you are using on the Internet won't work. Finally, you should have no problem on this site even if you are using 640/480 resolution. However I do see some problems and limitations using the site with web TV.

I Can't Find THE Quotation I Want.
Well we have thousands of quotations extracted from the 5000 eBook titles on the site. If you can't find a quotation it's probably, either, because 1) It isn't in or from one of our titles, 2) The translation/paraphrase you have is slightly different than mine, 3) It is in our books, but I haven't extracted it and put it on the site yet. Here's what to do. First, check to make sure that the author is on our Authors list. Then if you know the title of the work it's from, see if that's on our Titles list. If the answer is yes to both questions, why not send me an eMail with the COMPLETE Quotation and any citation that you have and we'll see if we can find it. (Of course, you could order the CD and find it yourself. :)) We will let you know. Send me the quotation at MoreQuotesDrew@FreeBooks5000.com. And Oh yes, be sure to check out the Search Tips on the Quotation page or on the eCard page. Here's a link searchtips.cfm

How Big Is The CD - And Install - Specs?
You get over 612 MEGABYTES of great literature on the FREE CD. It's Windows 95/98/ME compatible. And, it installs with a few clicks. It's remarkably easy. Because of the large database size and the way it's compressed to fit all 5000 titles on the disc, this program always requires the disc to be in your CD ROM drive when you wish to access the massive library. Unfortunately it's not Macintosh compatible. There's a Secret FAQ guide link you get when you acquire the CD that contains more hints and tricks to getting extra value, ideas, productivity and enjoyment from using the disc.
