    Hey I was just thinking that, is it possible to use contents from books to create a new website. I know this is illegal but I will create a page and put the title of the book and it's author to acknowledge them.

    in your mind
    so what if they sell the book for $$$ and you copy and post it on your blog? then there is no reason for him to sell if it is free on your blog

    Why not just re-write or summarize sections of the book? Then the content is unique from both an SEO and offline point of view. If you want to gamble, a very light rewrite of a book (with the chapters converted into web articles) will probably pass unnoticed as most books are not indexed on the web, so the original author should not pick up on the use of the content.

    Its really illegal.
    But you have choice that.
    You can spin the content and write in your own words.
    So you can post them..
