The essential guide to IT transformation

Anyone out there fancy a freebie? Between 3:30pm and 5:30pm BST this afternoon (UK time) Books Online UK is giving away free books to all comers. The giveaway is being promoted as a celebration of the company's fist six months online, but it should have the handy knock-on effect of distracting attention from the better known Amazon.com. Is there a catch? Well, visitors to the site are limited to a choice of five titles, which are non returnable. Any of these grab you? Patricia Cornwell's Point of Origin, Alex Garland's The Tesseract, Nick Leeson's Rogue Trader, Chris Stewart's Driving over Lemons and Shawn Levy's Rack Pack Confidential. The books are promised free of all charges including post and packaging costs. But BOL will not accept responsibility for books lost in the post. Bookworms up for a spot of literature -- or, for that matter, any of the best-sellers listed above -- should point their browsers here. ®
