Ayt! So there you have it.... Those are the books I have, printed out, or planning to print in the near future.

EDIT (3 March 2007) My hard copies aren't really that expensive. I rarely buy a PhP 500 and up books. Those are either bargain or on sale and all my hard copies are bought from National Bookstore. Their online site are updated with regards to their retail price so if you want to save money, better make sure you go to their store in person and spend time browsing through each title and checking out their price. If you don't believe me, the only book (listed above) that cost me more than PhP 450 is the Introduction to PC Hardware and Troubleshooting at PhP 499. Next expensive is the Linux Bible at PhP 399. Patience is a virtue my friend... just keep on browsing whatever title catches your attention and you'll sooner or later find a bargain.
