Today I’ve received an email from PackT, a really interesting online publisher that has many interesting IT titles in its shelf, usually I don’t do promotions in my articles, unless iI think it’s an interesting thing for my readers, like this one:
The deal: sign in into their website before the 30th of September 2012 and you’ll be entitled to download any one of their eBooks for free.
These are the info I’ve received by mail:
I wanted to share with you news of Packt’s 1000th title celebration this month. Yes, we are soon going to publish our 1000th title, and I wanted you to be part of this celebration and ask your support in spreading the news.
Packt published their first book in April 2004. One of the most prolific and fastest growing tech book publishers in the world, they now have books on everything from web development to web graphics, e-learning to e-commerce, IT architecture to games, and app development.
Packt supports many of the Open Source projects covered by its books through a project royalty donation, which has contributed over £300,000 to Open Source projects up to now. As part of the celebration Packt is allocating $30,000 to share between projects and authors in a genuinely unique way, soon to be disclosed on their website.
During the event, we will be inviting anyone already registered to www.packtpub.com, or who registers before 30th September 2012, to download any one of our eBooks for free. Packt is also opening its online library for a week for free to members, offering customers an easy to way to research their choice of free eBook. I’m sure your readers would greatly benefit from this offer.
I agree that this can be interesting for all the reader, there are some nice titles, let me know what you are taking, at the moment I’m taking a look at the ebooks on Alfresco, Jboss and Drupal, happy hunting for a nice Ebook on your favorite topic !
