I'd Like to Thank the Academy...

Please indulge me while I toot my own horn just once more. Amazon has published its Best Books of 2003 list, and I'm happy to say that The Macintosh iLife made the top ten in the Computers and Internet category.

In fact, it's the only Mac book on the list.

I'd like to thank the Academy, but that wouldn't be appropriate. It's the many thousands of Mac lovers who have bought my book who deserve -- and have -- my gratitude.

Thank you.

Amazon Is Now Giving Away My Book/DVD

Well, not quite. But Amazon has discounted the book even more -- it's now selling for 35 percent off the cover price, more than it's ever been discounted before.

The Macintosh iLife: An Interactive Guide to iTunes, iPhoto, iMovie, and iDVD can now be yours for $19.49 -- $10.50 off the cover price. That's $19.49 for a full-color book and a 90-minute training DVD that works together with it. And it's eligible for free shipping on orders of more than $25. (The answer: buy two!)

I don't usually blatently plug the book in these postings (oh, I plug it alright, but with a bit more subtletly, or so I like to think). But 35 percent off -- such a deal! I thought you'd want to know, what with the holidays right around the corner and all.

And after you buy, don't forget to get your free iTunes 4 and iTunes Music Store update. 18 full-color pages, same beautiful design as the book. Your free PDF awaits you.
