But see to it first that you will ask permission from your boss on this one. Inform him/her that you will only be downloading the book and will not be listening to it until after work hours. If you are aware that your public library has high connection then its better for you to download it from there. There are lots of ways for you to avail of free high speed internet connection if you are just open enough to know your options.
