And Now For Something Completely Instant

When was the last time you tried something completely different?  Something that wasn't part of what you do already?

It can be useful to try something that is completely outside what you normally do.  It helps you to see things from a different perspective and challenges you preconceptions about how things need to be.

The big problem is finding the time in a busy day to try new things.  This is why this month we are focusing on Packt Publishing's Instant range.  They are a set of short, to the point eBooks that show you how to do something new.

Instants are eBooks only, so for this month only both the winner and the runner up will receive eBooks.  That's different!  To find out more read this month's blog post on the LJC Book Club.

To take part in the promotion all you have to do is RSVP to this event on Meetup and complete the questions.

Packt Publishing are a unique publishing company specializing in highly focused books on specific technologies and solutions - please visit their site to find out more about them:

Each month we run a promotion with Packt in which LJC members will be selected at random to receive free books. This month we are offering 2 LJC members the chance to win;

First Prize Winner will receive 1 ecopy of his/her choice (for this month only)
Runner Up Winner - 1 ecopy of his/her choice

Please visit the Packt site at

Good luck!
