The JR folks will probably string me up for this, because they promote amazon.
If you buy tech. books online, check out:
bookpool
They usually beat amazon's prices by about 10%.
And I do not work for 'em........

Don't use them... I used them and I woke up in a hotel in new orleans with only one kidney. Only use amazon!! Keep repeating "I will always buy through JavaRanch...I will always buy through JavaRanch...I will always buy through JavaRanch...I will always buy through JavaRanch...I will always buy through JavaRanch...I will always buy through JavaRanch..."

If you use a link from JavaRanch to Amazon and actually BUY a book, then Paul Wheaton gets a few cents per book. This is basically the ONLY source of funding that he has to pay for the ejip hosting services and UBB licensing that keeps us running.
Otherwise he has been known to dip into the grocery money and Brenda (Mrs Paul) has been known to get sort of irrate about that .

Go to the Bunkhouse ( http://www.javaranch.com/books.jsp ) and buy dozens of books and make Paul and his wife happy.

Maybe he went home and went to bed. And took this tiny ad with him:
