Ever want to get information for a reliable source then find what you need in a book but really not that interested in buying the entire book? Well, that is the type of customer Wrox is going after with the introduction of their new "Chapters on Demand" service.


You are now able to purchase individual chapters as a PDF file. Looking at the site, you will also find a lot of free chapters made available as well. Rather interesting to see how it goes - some people will love it and others will not.

Funny for me is that I still love to read so much on paper that I even still print out longer articles on the web to read/highlight/etc. I have a tough time getting into a long read of something on the screen .... maybe because I'm getting older now. ;)

Bill, your a tree killer!

Can't you use some sort of annotation service to highlight now?

Read a bit at a time and have your eyes checked.

Are the eyes the first to go?
