Book and Software Recommendations Added to

People are always asking for software recommendations and for good books to learn various Web-related skills, and while my vision for includes a bookstore section, during the fall I began gradually adding book and software recommendations to many of the sidebars at to coincide with their annotated links topics. I’ve added enough to mention this new feature here now for the following sections:

Nearly all of these recommendations are a part of my personal library while a few are highly recommended by other experts. Yes, I love to read, and we all know there’s constantly lots to learn with our industry. I also use a fair amount of software and enjoy testing and trying out new software, too. I’ll be continuing to add more regularly, along with the ever-growing annotated links, tips, and tutorials.
