www.amazon.com does some PDFs. The individual publishers will have the same if you google for them. There is also Safari.

You should be aware that many sites that offer books for download are actually pirating copyrighted works. I assume you do not work for free, so you should give authors their due and purchase books that you use.
That said, there are several works available under very generous licenses which allow you to download a copy. One such work is How to Think Like A Computer Scientist.

Not a book I like at all; I have downloaded a copy and found quite a lot of errors in it. Also it doesn't teach Object-Oriented programming.

You would be better searching for the 3rd edition of Thinking in Java by Bruce Eckel. A bit out of date, but a much better book.

That's too bad. I haven't read the Java version, but I keep the Python version around for reference. I haven't spotted any errors and it covers the basics of Python's Object-oriented features well.

It's probably worth mention that the Java Tutorial is available for download, though I don't know the format (probably HTML).

Thank you, Joe; I shall remember that because somebody is asking for help with his Python.
