'Tis the Season: Great Book Sales

I don't usually talk about sales on this blog, but I happened to notice a few book sales you may find of  interest--check these out:

Information Today - library, information management and knowledge management titles

Michael Sauers has posted about the Information Today sale on books from Internet Librarian 2010 conference being extended to January 31, 2011: 40% off the retail price on all books. That is great news!

I am reading The Accidental Taxonomist by Heather Hedden which I picked up from InfoToday at KM World. For anyone into taxonomy, I highly recommend it!!

I  also purchased the new edition of Building & Running a Successful Research Business by Mary Ellen Bates which has been having great word-of-mouth reviews from colleagues, and Open Source Web Applications for Libraries by Haren Coombs & Amanda Hollister (shown in the image above). Lots of holiday reading in my future.

Looks like I need the new edition of  Michael's book Blogging and RSS: A Librarian's Guide to add to my collection, too!

Rosenfeld Media - user experience design titles

Rosenfeld Media, the maker of fine books on user experience design (also affectionately known as UX)  currently has a 40% off sale on their books, epubs and webinars until January 1st. I have several of their titles on my shelf for reference. They are gorgeous books, beautifully designed and bound, with practical, well-written content. I try to pick up the latest ones every time I see they have a sale.

Neal-Schuman Publishers - The Tech Set series for libraries

I noticed the series my book Effective Blogging for Libraries is part of,  The Tech Set series, is currently on sale 30% off from Neal-Schuman if you purchase the whole 10 book set (there is an ad on the front of the website). The deadline isn't indicated, so you might want to check with them directly.

In Canada this series is distributed by OLA Store. I checked with them, and they will extend this sale to Canadians until the end of the year as well. Contact Ryan Patrick of the OLA Store directly at for the sale price. (Thanks, Ryan!).

What about you--have you seen any good book sales? What work-related titles are you looking forward to reading?
