[buug] Books for ...

I've got some books to distribute to some user groups - including BUUG.
These are review copies from Pearson Education (they'd of course quite
appreciate if you write a review - especially on Amazon.com for the
particular title and edition).

I received 5 copies each of the physical books noted further below.
I'll be doing my semi-usual of giving a book (or two) away per user
group as I cycle through upcoming user group meetings I go to (given the
quantity received, I'll likely do up to 2 books per user group, at least
until each group has had at least one chance at getting books).

Want to increase your odds of getting one of these books?  :-)
I'll consider these factors:
o make it to the meeting (that's where I generally give the book(s)
    away for some person(s) in the user group)
o drop a note to the [L]UG's list regarding which title(s) you're
   interested in (in preference order if more than one), (and for what
   (noble) purpose(s))
o make it to the meeting on time (or best approximations thereof)
o which such note(s) of interest are posted earliest/earlier to list

I may also manage to get copies of Practical Guide to Ubuntu Linux, A,
4th Edition signed by the author.
