Thanks for the note.


Just now downloaded for a donation to Nostarch Press and the EFF:


A quick glance through looks very good. They are well presented and look
to have good content.

The only minor spoiler is the rather tedious individual download
clicking needed from the Humble Bundle site and the untidy unhelpful
file names used. (wget didn't work. The list above has been tidied up.)

For my brief review: Nicely better than various books/manuals I've
seen/suffered for various proprietary stuff!

For any of those titles to be used for frequent reference... It is still
hard to beat reading from and thumbing through real paper copies. Most
of them show "$49" for the printed copy.

Are there any good e-readers that are useable for colour pdf/epub and
that are unencumbered by lock-in?

All good stuff!
