O'Reilly Blogger Review Program

I learned about O'Reilly's Blogger Review Program through one of Scott Berkun's blog postings. He mentioned about getting a free copy of his book, Myths of Innovation through the Review Program and that got my full and undivided attention. I'm a sucker for anything that is free especially books!

How can you join this program? It's very simple actually.

1. First and foremost, you need to be a blogger of course! (Check!)
2. You like reviewing books or videos. (Double check!)
3. Once you are sure of 1 and 2, you can sign-up for your free account. (Done!)

After creating my O'Reilly account the other day, I received an email today informing me that my application for the program had been approved! Wow that was fast! I was so excited I immediately requested for a copy of ... The Myths of Innovation (of course!) for my first book review.

I had been an avid reader of O'Reilly's technical and business books. These books were instrumental to my growth as a programmer before and a project manager now. Now, I can get (I hope!) O'Reilly books for free and have a topic for my blog. Hitting two birds with one stone. How great is that!
