QCS members,

We recently joined the User Group support of Focal Press. Each month we have the opportunity to select two titles for free.  In return they request a review of the book after having been read.  Since this is our initial start I took it upon myself to select the first two, but in the months ahead I will list the titles available in the newsletter and on the QCS web site from which you can choose and participate.
Your reviews will be published in our QBITS newsletter and submitted to Focal Press.  Company support of computer users groups is very welcome and we  encourage this opportunity.  The books are :

  1. Vintage Games by Bill Loguidice and Matt Barton
  2. Paintshop Pro X4 for photographers by Ken Mc Mahon. (Being reviewed by Vicki W)

Send me an email of call me with your selection and I can hand it to you at the main program meeting or a SIG group that you attend or you can drop by to pick it up.  The book is free to you and does not need to be returned.
