Trying to enter an Internet site. Something blocks me?


Can somebody tell me how to enter idd.bookzz.org? From where I am I am consistently blocked from who knows what on the Internet. Most of the times, as I try through Google, the site gives me a link to that site but when trying it a message says the url does not exist. If I try directly it is the web browser who says he cannot connect.

The site exists as I have been using it and is well known.

Try just http://www.bookzz.org maybe.

It is possible that there may be some blocking that we couldn't know about.

From https://www.quora.com/Which-site-is-best-to-download-ebooks-aaaarg-org-or-bookzz:

Bookzz used to be the best site to download eBooks for me but its down now. Bookzz is shut permanently for now. According to the message got on the 29th/05/2017 it showed that bookzz eBook site is gone for good. And they have moved on to a new domain b-ok dot org
DuckDuckGo (or Google) is your friend.

Thanks so much. I entered mentioned site and it's just the same as the original! I had a djvu ebook downloaded from that site. I wanted to get it printed (photocopy) and the house they told the only worked with pdf. So I wanted to get a pdf version (the book is the famous A Survey of Modern Algebra) but I couldn't. However I have just solved the problem, using djvulibre to convert the file to pdf format. Unbelievable, is no it?
