Book Book, And More Books, - Oh My!

There is absolutely no excuse for not getting the training you need on just about any subject available these days. I thought one of the coolest entries into on-line resources was the solution being shown over at Peachpit Press. You have to check out their Safari Books Online service right there.

Here is the deal, Safari Books Online is combining the content of 1000's of books from Peachpit, New Riders, Adobe Press, O'Reilly, and Lynda's published library and making them available online at very nominal price. Can you image - all that content right at your fingertips. Normally the cost is $42.99 a month, but thanks to the good folks at Peachpit, you can still get their special introductory price of only $39.99/month or $439.99/year for about another week.

To take advantage of the convention special head over to Peachpit right here. To get the deal, you will need to give this special code - ZKQDDFH - this is a special for all readers, so go check it out. Resources unlimited!!

  1. I have serious doubts regarding this rent-a-library business model. Once you read a book, it becomes reference material from this moment on. A service that keeps books strictly online, would therefore require one to pay for it regularly for what can potentially be the rest of one's professional career. In the long run this is unfeasible and ends up more expensive than buying the book the "old-fashioned way". I have yet to see a service that allows one to buy & download ANY book, as a regular PDF. This, I believe, is the model that would work best for any professional literature, be it one related to photography or something else.
