Jax created the topic: Institute Bookstore

For those who don't know, we have a bookstore located on Amazon.com.  It exists as an easy place to look for reading recommendations.  In addition, by following the link below and purchasing anything off amazon, you will be contributing to the costs of keeping this website online, as we'll receive a percentage of what you all buy.  If you're going to be buying things from amazon, please consider going through this link so your purchase does some extra good.  We do pay monthly for webhosting in order to add stability and keep this and the new website ad free.  :-)

If you have recommendations for books that aren't in the bookstore, please reply here and I'll go ahead and add them.  Thanks!

Institute Bookstore (specific recommendations for your studies, but certainly not all inclusive)

Thanks for posting this Jax. I did not know about this and will certainly begin ordering books beginning next year.

For those of you who don't have the money to purchase books, I have an ebook alternative.  All you need to do is drop me an email/pm.

:surprise

Great idea, although I wish I'd checked here before I ordered the majority of our Yule presents ....

Oh well, there's always a too long list of books to buy ....

We are better than we know. If we can be made to see it, then for the rest of our lives we'll be unwilling to settle for less.

Yeah, I agree.  :-)  And it certainly would have been handy had I thought to do this earlier... lol  But it took me a while to get back to many website things.  So much to do in so little time!  I'll be buying some presents late this year due to finances so I just need to remember to order through this as well. 

Let me know if you have any reference books (of any time) that we can add.

and now Amazon has kindle software for your PC, Iphone, Ipad, Blackberry, and Mac, so you can buy Kindle books and access them without a Kindle:

Yes, it can be helpful though I'm pretty bad about using ebooks.  It just isn't convenient enough for me.  Though we use the sony ereader here to view our powerpoint presentations it isn't as good.  I need to go through and update the library.  I doubt I'll have much work to do during my 1 week between vacation and the start of my 3D processing class so I should try to do it then. :-)

*perhaps I should put Memnoich in charge of the bookstore...* haha  Thanks for the list, that's awesome Memnoich!  During the last week of June/first week of July if you could remind me to do this that would be awesome. ;-)

Memnoich replied the topic: Re: Institute Bookstore

no problem. This is just a small list I'm looking at, and if I buy, I want the IJRS to get a cut. Though, if you're serious, I would be happy to update the bookstore.
