We're now accepting orders for printed copies of Digging Into WordPress version 3.0. The books currently are finishing up at the printers, and should be ready to ship within the next week or so. From what we've seen so far, the finished books are looking incredible. To give you a taste, here are a few shots of the newly printed books featuring the new dark/black cover and black coil binding:
The book looks and feels good – the durable coil binding lets the book stay open flat for easy reading, and the quality of the printing is excellent, with crisp text and vivid colors throughout the book. And the new black cover looks amazing on the glossy 80-lb card stock. Even with 430 pages of WordPress content, the book feels solid and durable. The copy in the photos above was used for proof-reading and has been flipped through by several people, but as you can see it still looks great.
So here’s the deal: as with previous versions, we have a limited number of books to sell, and they may go quickly, so don’t delay if you want one. The books are priced at $70 + shipping/handling, which is around $10 within the US. This includes delivery confirmation.
YES we are shipping internationally! At least for now. Last time there were too many problems so we had to disable it. For now though, international shipping is available, but the shipping is quite a bit more expensive. International shipping includes tracking and possibly delivery confirmation.
What else? The printed book includes a FREE copy of the PDF, which includes our exclusive WordPress themes and free lifetime updates.
