In the United States it is a violation of copyright law to photocopy an entire book.
The law permits selective pages within reason, but never an entire book.

 The book has not even been released and you are already planning on

 The book could be copied from a library or friend's copy. This is not
ncommon practice for university students who cannot afford books that cost
0, 30 or 40c per page. As far as I know it is not illegal and does not
eprive the publisher of money from a potential customer who cannot or will
ot pay an extortionate price in the first place.
