There are private torrent trackers that open registrations frequently and then there are sites that rarely open their doors. My Anonamouse is a site that belongs to the latter category. Good news here is that they have finally decided to open signups after almost a year, in celebration of Easter holidays. True, you could always obtain an invite easily by going through the IRC interview process but now even that hurdle is gone. This should be great news for E-book and Audiobook lovers – as we have highlighted several times in the past, My Anonamouse is a greatly underrated niche tracker that indexes a vast amount of content and has a huge, friendly community of active members.
With over 27000 registered members and 32000+ active torrents, this is a huge ass private tracker. The fact that it’s a specialized site that’s packed with content not usually found elsewhere further increases its value. What’s even more important is that My Anonamouse has been growing at an explosive rate – when we first reviewed this site back in September 2009 it tracked around 14k torrents and had 18k members. During the past 6 months alone, more than 9000 new members have been recruited and over 18000 torrents have been uploaded to the tracker – very impressive stats indeed.
As for the content, My Anonamouse primarily tracks E-books and Audiobooks. Unlike most other places, selection of books is not limited to non-fiction or educational content – even novels that deal with fantasy, action, adventure, etc are indexed. This is also one of the handful torrent sites that track music tutorials such as lick libraries, sheet music, guitar/bass tabs etc. A description of the available content as per My Anonamouse staff is quoted below:
If you are a musician, you will find: Lick libraries, sheet music, instructional media as well as Concert DVDs.
For book lovers, we have an amazing selection of both audio and ebooks, ranging from current 'blockbuster' releases to those rare gems.
Our recently added Comic/Graphic Novel section is growing daily.
You can find additional information about My Anonamouse in our previous reviews about the site located here and here. Coming back to the open signups, note that registrations will not be open forever:
We will be opening our doors from Friday, April 2. 12:00 GMT to Monday, April 5. 12:00 GMT. You are welcome to spread the word in the places you frequent so we can bring in some fresh blood into our wonderful community.
For those who like E-books or Audiobooks, this is a must have tracker. If you don’t already have an account, go head and check the site out.
