[EN] Neverending free-ebook-story (part2)

This will be a short irregular series. Not every Thursday, but on Thursdays I will try to write about interesting books, which I found for free. Of course they are in digital form, but is not bad news. I travelling very often, and I always have physical book with me (for pleasure of pure reading and for safety of my eyes) but one book for one or twoo weeks trip is not enough. Those books I ordered in O’Reilly Media Store about week ago. All are free: in minimum three formats (ePub, Mobi, PDF), some of them in Daisy version too. This time they came from two series.
