If you’re looking to save some money on print books or ebooks, you’re in luck today! There are two specials going on — one from O’Reilly and the other from No Starch.
First, O’Reilly is offering a great deal — 50% off selected DIY ebooks! The special expires December 11, 2012 at 11:59pm PT, so get your orders in now! (Of course, with ebooks, there’s no risk of running out of stock!) To get the deal, visit here and use the code HDELECT — you’ll see ebooks on Lego, electronics, Arduino and much more. They’ve even got the Best Teach Yourself Electronics Book Ever (IMO) for only $13.99! You know why I like books from O’Reilly? Because they are “DRM-free. You get free lifetime access, multiple file formats, and free updates. Now includes Dropbox syncing.”
You can read my review of Make: Electronics here.
You can read my review of the Encyclopedia of Electronic Components Volume 1 here. (It’s the fourth book down the list)
You can read Dave G’s review of the Arduino Cookbook here.
Next, the folks over at No Starch are having their own sale on ebooks and print versions — 40% off ALL of their books for the next 72 hours. All of it. Everything. Get the deal by visiting here and using code TISTHESEASON. They’ve got way too many books to mention them all, but if you’re a fan of Lego, you’ll definitely want to check out John Baichtal’s Cult of Lego (with his co-author, Joe Meno). Other books that they’re offering that we’ve reviewed include:
Super Scratch Programming Adventure
Unofficial LEGO Technic Builder’s Guide
