Microsoft gives away collection of free eBooks - bookworms rejoice

17 Comments

I'll probably grab all of them, just because they are there. I have a databases class in the Fall, so I might thumb through the SQL book during the month or so bertween my summer and fall classes.

Not a DBA or a coder, so I skipped most of the Visual Studio, SQL and Azure stuff.  I am a sysadmin, so I grabbed just about everything else, and will end up using nearly all of it.

I'm glad you all found the eBooks post(s) helpful.  Please share with your peers, colleagues, and friends so they can take advantage of the ones that would most benefit them as well.

I don't know but I use Overdrive. The app lets you borrow books from the library and supports EPUB format.
