Every once in a while, a deal comes around that is sort of a no-brainer. This is one of those deals, so I suggest you read, act, and enjoy (in that order)!
SitePoint is a well-respected online media company that, among other things, publishes some very well written books. I received a copy of Jason Beaird’s The Principles of Beautiful Web Design for Christmas, and I couldn’t put it down until I finished it – despite the fact that I also had a shiny new copy of Mario Kart Wii vying for my attention. That’s a good web book, people.
SitePoint’s home offices are based in Melbourne, Australia – which is in the Victoria state in the southeast corner of the continent, for those of you who (like me) aren’t the best at geography. As you’ve probably seen in the news, Victoria is currently battling the worst bushfires in Australian history.
So where does the whole books/cause thing figure in?
In order to raise money for the Australian Red Cross, SitePoint is having a 5-for-1 sale on PDF versions of their books. You can purchase and download high-quality PDF versions of five of their books for just $29.95 (normally $149.75 total!). And best of all, 100% of your purchase will go to the Australian Red Cross and will help victims of the bushfires.
This offer ends on this Friday (February 13th), so be sure to act fast. I’ll be getting my five books momentarily – as soon as I can narrow down my list to my top five picks! Which five books are you picking up? Let me know in the comments.
