O'Reilly Ebook Deal of the Day
« on: February 08, 2010, 11:35:10 AM »
O'Reilly has a daily deal on an ebook where they typically (always?) bring the price down to $9.99.
Not sure how long they've been doing this, but I just found out recently, and have already taken advantage twice.

There isn't an actual link to a page for the deals but there is a box on the ebooks section about the current one and here's a link to their daily deal RSS feed.

When you buy an ebooks thru oreilly.com you get lifetime access to the book, and whenever possible we provide it to you in four, DRM-free file formats — PDF, .epub, Kindle-compatible .mobi, and Android .apk ebook — that you can use on the devices of your choice. Our ebook files are fully searchable, and you can cut-and-paste and print them. We also alert you when we've updated the files with corrections and additions.

Some recent titles:
  • R in a Nutshell
  • Making Things Talk
  • Search Patterns
  • CSS Cookbook, Third Edition
  • Building iPhone Apps with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript
  • Beautiful Testing
  • Make: Electronics
  • The Social Media Marketing Book
  • Using Drupal
  • Switching to the Mac: The Missing Manual, Leopard Edition
  • The New How
  • Masterminds of Programming
  • The Sustainable Network
  • Your Body: The Missing Manual
  • Head First iPhone Development

Now that's what I call perfect timing!

I recently bought "R in a Nutshell" (dead tree edition) and was thinking of getting it in an ebook edition too. I prefer reading real books, but ebooks have the advantage of making it easy to carry a bunch around and usually to search or cut and paste from.

Note that even though it's a 'daily deal' page, the discounts seem to be valid for longer than a day. So if you see something you're interested has a deal from some number of days ago, give the coupon code a try anyway.
