There are (at least) 3 good questions on "free books" available on the web:

Every time I come across a good book and I'd like to add it, but I'm not sure to which thread..

The second one was actually merged with yet another last June, but that was when merges were still awful. – mmyers Jun 26 '10 at 6:11
I merged the second one into the first. The third one is about good books on programming languages in general, not specifically free ebooks. I don't want to pollute the free ebook question with a bunch of paper book answers, so I think they should stay separate. – Bill the Lizard Jun 26 '10 at 11:58
@Bill the lizard, the problem I have with merging is that the one with the answers in the question (isn't that against SO convention?) duplicates a lot of the answers in the upvoted answer. I think I'll go through and move all the answers to the answer so they're all in one place. What say you? – George Stocker Jun 26 '10 at 14:16
@George: I agree, it is better to have the master list in the answers rather than the question. – Bill the Lizard Jun 26 '10 at 15:46
I thought merging left stubs now; what happened to #391523? – Shog9 Jun 26 '10 at 16:24
@Shog9: I'm being taken to the stub when I click the link for that one (2nd link in the list above). Are you getting the "page not found" message, or are you being automatically forwarded to #194812? – Bill the Lizard Jun 28 '10 at 13:42
@Bill: I see the stub now - when I commented, I was getting "page not found". – Shog9 Jun 28 '10 at 13:49

Since the 'answers' in the original question were against SO convention and they heavily duplicated the list in the answer, I merged them with the answers from my answer and removed all duplicates.
