The Raleigh-Durham Web Design Group Message Board Book Reviews › O'Reilly Member Discount

O'Reilly Member Discount

Mitch A.

As of January 2010, The Raleigh Durham Web Design Group is registered with the O'Reilly Media user group program.

Member Benefits

Reviews in exchange for a Book
O'Reilly will GIVE US free review copies of their books. As the group contact, Mitch can request a review copy for you. Once a review of a book has been written, please email a copy to Mitch.

That's it. The thinking now is that a month should be sufficient to do a review. After you've had the book for a month and done a review, pass it on if there is another reviewer lined up or keep it for another month and then let it back back to circulation for the group members.

We expect reviewers to give the material a serious, thorough review so don't bother if you kinda-sorta might do it. If you find your circumstances prevent you from following through, please make that determination as soon as possible and get the book back to the group so another reviewer can have at it. O'Reilly will have no reason to bother with us if we can't deliver the goods.

A new Message Board area will be set up soon specifically for book reviews.

Group members are entitled to a discount on O'Reilly products purchased directly from us. Information for placing an order is provided on the O'Reilly discount flyers, which will be made available at meetings. (It won't be posted on-line.)

Members are also entitled to a discount on O'Reilly conferences and tutorials. Other special discount offers may also be forwarded to the group from time to time.

Other benefits

O'Reilly regularly donates books and other promotional items for raffles or auctions to help your group raise money, or for meeting door prizes. On a quarterly basis, we'll send our latest catalog. Some of their authors are willing to speak at user group meetings as well -- if you are interested in a particular author's work let Mitch know and O'Reilly may be give us some help with a speaker or two.

As contact, O'Reilly will send links for articles, tips, and news to Mitch. These will be from the O'Reilly
web site: and from the O'Reilly Network: Mitch may include these in the reminders for meetings, but will continue to keep the mailing list as noise-free as possible.

What we can do for O'Reilly

  • O'Reilly is now listed as a sponsor on our Web site

  • Members are encouraged to review an O'Reilly book and post reviews on Amazon and to our Message Board -- if you do please send Mitch a copy so I can ensure an O'Reilly representative gets a copy too.

  • Buy from O'Reilly using our discount code! Seriously, they want to promote their products, so when you get the itch to get that next book, do check them out.
