I am often tempted by books on web design. Kind of like when I got really excited and pre-ordered the Smashing Book. I’ve now had it for months, and I’ve hardly cracked the spine.
Now I see that the team behind A List Apart (an amazing online web design magazine) has launched A Book Apart, and their first publication, HTML 5 for Web Designers. My gut instinct was to pre-order. But then I remembered the Smashing Book.
Do I really want to sit and read about web design? Or just mess around with it? I think it’s a combo of both. I need to learn more about HTML 5, and soon. If there was a dream team of instructors, these guys would be it. So maybe I have to pull myself away from the computer screen and crack open the books.
