This week's book giveaway is in the Mac OS forum. We're giving away four copies of a choice of "Take Control of Upgrading to Yosemite" or "Take Control of Automating Your Mac" and have Joe Kissell on-line! See this thread for details.
Of course, you could always go for the SCJA Certification. There are some great books on that topic, although I'm biased. SCJA is the new entry level certification exam, intended to be taken by professionals before tackling SCJP.
