Its the 1st of January, 2014, and its time for some resolutions, and decisions, and today, I'm reminding you of an important one. Leveling up your skills... Packt Publishing's $5 Ebook sale is ending Jan 3rd, so its your last chance to pick up some of those amazing books, for only $5, you just can't beat that deal.

Today I bought 10 books, some of them I discussed here in my first post on the Ebook-bonanza from Packt Publishing but I decided to look a little more and picked up a couple more. Today, I busted open the first one, one I have been meaning to read for a LONG time now, so I finally did. It was a good read, and actually finished it today. Matt Gifford's Object Oriented Programming for ColdFusion... so let me tell you what I thought about it.

Deals and Steals - Books and Training - Packt Publishing $5 Ebook Special

Books and Training, Steals and Deals

Its Christmas time, and its all about shopping right? Well, maybe not, but there are sometimes a few good deals to be found, and today is one of those days. Packt Publishing, one pretty reputable book company that deals with books for IT Professionals, Administrators and Users, is having an EBook Bonanza… where every single Ebook they have, which is almost 2000 books, are all going for $5. They support multiple formats, and yes, they are only $5 each. This special lasts until January 3rd, so jump on it, and soon.

If you want a paperback copy of course, Amazon is always awesome, and you can check all of Packt Publishing books listed here on Amazon. Note the Kindle Edition Prices on Amazon are 14-25 dollars, just skimming down the page. So this is a great deal, but more importantly, are these books that you want really want? I have a couple already, in paperback, and I have my eyes on several others, and I'll tell you why I'm going to snap them up.
