I’ve kept the advertising on the site to a minimum over the years, but there are a few publishers who have been super kind to me, and have given me many free titles to review. Truth be told, I have so many titles, I could do a book review a week and not run out of books for a couple of years at this point.
Packt Publishing in the UK is one of those companies that has given me much. Therefore, when they do something that I deem could be helpful to the broader community, I feel it appropriate to draw attention to it.
What is Packt up to this time?
They are giving away a free eBook each day.
Update: Packt has confirmed that this promotion is ongoing.
From Packt’s Site:
It’s back! And this time for good. Following on from the huge success of our Free Learning campaign, we’ve decided to open up our free library to you permanently, with better titles than ever — from today you can claim a free eBook every day here.
Each eBook will only be free for 24 hours, so make sure you come back every day to grab your Free Learning fix! From AngularJS to Zabbix, we’ll be featuring a diverse range of titles from our extensive library, so don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity to develop some new skills and try out new tech.
Judging from the image above, it looks like this promotion is running through May 17th, but if I’m reading correctly up above, their plan is to offer a free book every day indefinitely (update: yes, it’s going to be a perpetual promotion). To be clear, one book is available each day, from 12:00 a.m. to 11:59p.m. GMT.
If, like me, you are jonesing to add to your Tsundoku, here’s another opportunity to do exactly that :).
