You're probably not accepting cookies.  I downloaded several books with 
Lynx the cat.  Also, you'll have to be careful when saving.  Lynx 
doesn't preserve the full names of the files because NLS uses spaces.  
If possible, you should use Firefox for a better experience, but it can 
be done with Lynx.  What I did was send a head request for the book I 
wanted and print the output to a file.  Among the headers is the full 
name of the file.  If using Speakup, you can copy and paste the file 
name, including quotes and rename the incomplete file names.
