A few weeks ago I started a little new section of the site for books that I recommend on design and development. I’m calling it the CSS-Tricks bookshelf (no longer active).

I own and have read (probably more than once) and fully endorse every single one of these books. The links to purchase the books are Amazon affiliate links, so their purchase supports me and this site a bit. Good place to get rid of them Amazon giftcards you got for Christmas =)

Free Book Giveaway!

Packt Publishing very kindly offered me a free book to give away to one of you guys:

Learning jQuery by Jonathan Chaffer and Karl Swedberg

I’m a big fan of this book. I read most of it on a long plane trip this past October and it is 100% responsible for me getting all excited about the possibilities of learning to use JavaScript and jQuery and hence all the tutorials and examples around here.

To win it…

Just leave a quick comment with the text “Learning jQuery” in the body of it somewhere and quick sentence or two (or however much you want) on why you want it. I’m not trying to be a pain in the ass, I just want to give it to someone who really wants to learn jQuery. I’ll literally use a random number generator on Wednesday, January 21st to pick a totally random winner. Use your real email when commenting of course so I can get in contact with you to get your mailing address.
