Check it out! (I think this sale is good for only today.) They’ve got some terrific books (delivered as a PDF file) which would make a great New Year present for your most favorite geek 🙂
Also to consider for your training are these two great resources:
http://www.lynda.com (All the training videos you can watch for only $25 a month. I’m a subsciber myself.)
http://my.safaribooksonline.com/ (For $22 a month you can read up to 10 books on technical communication, web design, programming, etc. Considering how much computer books cost in general, I believe it’s a good bargain.
What makes further sense with this arrangement is the fact that once I read a computer book, it’s done and I almost never read it again. Then the question becomes, why should I pay for the physical custody of a book?
For me it makes more sense to pay for reading a book than parking it “forever” on my book shelf. Almost all computer books become obsolete within 6 months anyways…)
