O’Reilly Media Wish list sweepstakes

February 13th, 2011 Comments off

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)

bash CookbookPrint$49.99
Beautiful CodePrint + Ebook$44.49
Being GeekPrint$24.99
CSS Cookbook, Third EditionPrint$49.99
HTML & CSS: The Good PartsPrint$34.99
Linux Server HacksPrint$24.95
Linux Server Hacks, Volume TwoPrint$39.99
Open Source for the EnterprisePrint$22.95
RESTful Web ServicesPrint$39.99
RESTful Web Services CookbookPrint$39.99
Ruby CookbookPrint$49.99
Windows PowerShell Cookbook, Second EditionPrint$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.
