Getting The Most Out Of Your Library : Comments
August 12, 2008
Libraries can have good resources, even for technology, especially established stuff like C++, PHP, Photoshop, Java, etc.
I’m even seeing a few rails books in there.
When I buy a brand new book, if its a necessity for me I do one of two things: donate it to the Santa Cruz Library, or keep it, and reference it later.
These days most books are being delivered as PDFs as well, so donating the paperback, and keeping the PDF works for me (i hate reading books on a screen).
I think Kindle may help that, but I’m also thinking it will all be propriatary crap, kin to the “Video Ipod”. W/o hoops to get a regular old PDF. At $400 I’m not willing to take that risk again.
