NetFlix for Books exists! It’s BookSwim.
This might be a great resource for any technology related reading. Personally, dropping $50 on a book which I’m certain will be outdated in a matter of months, or was at publishing, hurts my wallet and spirits. BookSwim might be an alternative to such expensive tech-reading.
Pricing starts out at $19 a month with a selection of over 150,000 books and free shipping both ways.
This seems a bit high to me, as buying a book would be a little more than twice that, and I would have it forever. However, if I purchase more than four books a year, then BookSwim wins out on pricing. ( $19 * 12 = $228 & $50 * 4 = $200 ).
It’s worth looking into.
