The Baen Free Library is a collection of books online from Baen Publishing. Free, no strings. Check it out.

I stopped using these web pages as part of the an Amazon Associates program in response to their pulling Jon Atack's A Piece of Blue Sky from their catalog. Amazon.com has begun selling it again. (But now it's out of print and the publisher has no plans to reprint. You can find it on the web here.) I've now set up optional Powell's or Amazon.com ordering.

The best prices I've found on technical and computer books are to be found at http://www.bookpool.com/; their prices blow Amazon.com away on things like O'Reilly books and W. Richard Stevens' books on TCP/IP. For example, volume 1 of Stevens' TCP/IP Illustrated is over $65 at Amazon.com (no discount), but only slightly over $50 at Bookpool. The O'Reilly books I just purchased were each about $10 cheaper at Bookpool as compared to Amazon.com.
