Recommendation: Books For Nerds

A coworker sent me this link recently:

This company sells most of the major technical books out there, and is often cheaper than Amazon and other rivals.  The big perk for me is that they have a location in Richardson, TX where I can pickup the books and save on shipping.  The net effect is a good 20% savings per book!

At my normal book buying rate, that would save me at least $200 per year! Woohoo!

  • Thanks to all of your for the kind comments. For whatever it's worth, I believe that Powell's Books in Portland, Oregon and our storefront have the best inventories in the United States. and, I believe, have the best prices.

    Also worthy of mention are the following:

    San Diego Technical Books (

    (also known as "That Computer Bookstore")

    OPAMP Technical Books

    Digital Guru


    Quantum Books

    Powell's Books, Tattered Cover in Denver, and Standford Bookstore are excellent too.

    Best of luck to you all.
