YMMV on printed Photography Books: Amazon and Overstock price war in progress

LED Lighting primer ebook on sale (general interest; not photography specific)

If you are interested in learning more or understanding more about LED lighting in general, the deal of the day at the O'Reilly Shop is the LED Lighting primer book. This is not a photography lighting book. It covers LEDs from a general interest perspective, but since LED lights are becoming more popular with photographers, it might be of interest at a technical and general level.

Now the best price on the book, depends on what format you want and whether you want DRM or not. The O'Reilly Shop e-books are DRM-free. Not only that, but O'Reilly is also happy with lending and reselling their e-books as long as one does this ethically. Their best value is the e-book plus printed copy for $7.69.

If you want to pay the lowest price possible, and you are okay with DRM, you can get it for $3.77 for the Amazon Kindle.
