Packt Publishing, a UK based technical publisher, announced a special offer on Friday for its eBook library. All new subscribers to PacktLib will be able to download and keep one eBook title each month.
PacktLib is a subscription based service that offers access to all 640 titles that Packt has in circulation. The titles cover a variety of topics from specific IT subjects including: Apache, 3D Gaming Amazon API, MySQL, .Net, and more.
Packt offers a 1 month free trial, and individual subscriptions start at £15 a month. A 1 year subscription costs £150. (Don’t let the prices fool you; it’s open to anyone.) Corporate subscriptions are also available.
PacktLib originally launched in August 2010, and it’s just the latest of Packt Publishing’s digital efforts. Packt has been releasing eBooks since 2007, and in 2009 it also dropped DRM from all of the eBooks it sells.
