At the rate things are progressing in the BitTorrent community, it wouldn’t be a surprise if someone launches a torrent tracker for cats. Thankfully, CatTorrent has nothing to do with cats. On the contrary, it’s an underrated private tracker that tracks lots of audiobooks and e-books. CatTorrent should not be mistaken for an E-learning tracker – it mostly indexes fiction and doesn’t have much educational content. In a world populated by thousands of general trackers, it’s really great to see the likes of CatTorrent around – if you love audiobooks/e-books, public registrations are open right now.
There aren’t many sites similar to CatTorrent out there. Two torrent trackers that come to mind are My Anonamouse (Open via IRC Recruitment) and MakeGreatMusic. With MakeGreatMusic shutting down for good, the demand for CT probably went even higher. Some of you may never have heard about it but CT is not one of those isolated, ghost town of a tracker. The site tracks over 3600 torrents and has an active user base in excess of 2600 members.
As for the content, CatTorrent mainly tracks E-Books (in PDF, LIT and TXT formats) and Audiobooks. There are some good E-book collection torrents available, in addition to individual book downloads. CT probably has one of the largest audiobook libraries in a BT tracker with over 3000 torrents indexed under this category.
Download speeds are generally good on CT with some torrents (ones with an animated blue icon next to them) hosted on seedboxes. There is no use talking about pre times as this tracker mostly has non scene uploads. A seed bonus system also exists.
If you want to get hold of a CatTorrent account, it’s pretty easy. Signups are currently open. Be sure to read the rules before you start using the site, as always.
