Downloading Our Online Books


The Best of Both Worlds

There are several ways to download our Online Books for reading when you don’t have internet access.

Why Online

 If you are wondering why we don’t provide the Online Books as eBooks, here’s more on that.

But before we get into that, we need to make clear that we built our Online Books to be read, well…online, so that we can easily keep them up to date and so that you can comment whenever you have a question or a suggestion.

And, after all, most of us have internet access most of the time, particularly when we want to read technical books.


Having said that, if you wish to read our Online Books offline, here’s a very cool way to do that on just about any device you can imagine:

  • Sign up for Instapaper (it’s free).
  • Download their plugin for your browser (Chrome or Safari) or an App for your device.
  • Go to Attainable Adventure Cruising.
  • Click on the Online Book you want to download in the sidebar (scroll down on a tablet or phone).
  • Scroll down and click on the title of the last chapter.
  • Use one of the techniques documented here to save the page to Instapaper.
  • Click on the next to last chapter in the Table of Contents of the Online Book that has magically appeared at the top of the sidebar (scroll down on a tablet or phone).
  • Repeat until done.

Once you get the hang of it, it’s much quicker to do than it sounds.

    The ebook libarary is a good idea, but I have issues and request a bit of assistance:

    When it comes to IT have until now not had a feeling of having 10 thumbs – as we say – but when it comes to saving the AAC book club books to pocket I have no luck.
    Have tried with both adding extensions in Firefox, Chrome, and bookmarklets to the same, and also tried to save from iPad.
    I get the pages saved, but in Pocket I can view only the open portion of each page, i.e. a picture and a few lines of text from each chapter.
    When saving from the browser, I see the full content and have logged as member.

    Assistance will be highly appreciated.

    – Petter
