How do you copy and paste the text from every page of a book from Google books View plain text option:

For example: http://books.google.com/books?id=r70CAAAAQAAJ&printsec=frontcover&dq=true+devotion+blessed+virgin&lr=&as_brr=1&ei=cwB1SZOcI5j4MO6c-bkM

instead of doing it by hand.

Also how do you open a series of table of contents like this: http://www.catholictradition.org/Classics/humility-text.htm
and then
1. copy paste on one page like this: http://www.catholictradition.org/Classics/humility-text1.htm#4

2. copy paste to this form: http://www.creationscience.com/onlinebook/ (table of contents on the side while you view the text on main page)

Because he thinks we'll do his homework for him.

This isn't h/w.


still has nothing to do with python

I know a tiny amount of python so I wanted people to help me.

For the google books,
I know this much: put raw_input #enter web address.

But I don't know this:

code for clicking on "view plain text"

code for copying and pasting from one page, to a word file,
then press spacebar (goes down one page)
then repeat until end of the book is reached.


So where should I post something like this to get help on programming?


They have a PDF download link. Why not use that?

When it is put into text form, one can highlight the important passages, and copy and paste the important passages.
