Folks, are there any good online bookshelf/libraries??? I use informit/safari books site but I have noticed that their editions of books are usually pretty old and they also don't have many popular books on J2EE/Java. I was wondering if there are any other such online bookshelves that you can subscribe to. Thanks.

I have to admit being addicted to hardcopy books.
While I did read "Thinking in Java" online for a while, in the end I bought it because you just can NOT cuddle up in bed and read a computer screen .
Sorry - not much help.

Same here. I find myself just spending a load on printer paper and ink cartridges to print out electronic docs.
Cheaper to order the book from somewhere.

The Server Side has some online books. They often put up chapters of books in progress. There are usually some completed J2EE books up there as well.
