Books, books and more books

Posted: 29th September 2008

I’m getting a bit over-excited because I’m trying out Safari Books Online which describes itself as ‘the e-reference library for programmers and IT professionals’. For around £15 a month I get access to ten ebooks which I can swap once they’ve been on my shelf for ten days – ample to keep me amused I should think.

The main reason for my looking at it is for access to web design books to keep my skills up to scratch. I want to move forward with my knowledge of JavaScript but have come to the conclusion that most of the books on my shelf are out of date – I want to learn current techniques! So instead of buying more books that will rapidly become out-dated I’m giving the ebook thing a whirl.

Although the focus is on computer-related books I was thrilled to find that it also gives me access to some more general business books. Yay! But how will I find time to read them all?
