You’ve all heard me promote the O’Reilly Media Wish list sweepstakes. Go read the rules but the basics are you generate a wish list of O’Reilly titles including books, ebooks and videos that total up to $500, and then you get an entry for the random selection. Slimming down a wish list to $500 is very much the hard part, but here is my selection.
(Disclaimer: All prices are O’Reilly prices with no discounts)
|Beautiful Code||Print + Ebook||$44.49|
|CSS Cookbook, Third Edition||$49.99|
|HTML & CSS: The Good Parts||$34.99|
|Linux Server Hacks||$24.95|
|Linux Server Hacks, Volume Two||$39.99|
|Open Source for the Enterprise||$22.95|
|RESTful Web Services||$39.99|
|RESTful Web Services Cookbook||$39.99|
|Windows PowerShell Cookbook, Second Edition||$54.99|
That’s right, a total of $499.29. I’m sure it’s possible to get closer to the $500 limit, but my goal was books I want and I will read. I’m happy with this list. Go read the rules an get your own entry in and best of luck.
