Publisher User Group programs and JUG Library

Hi all,
As You already know, last month we joined three publisher User Group programs.
Last week I unexpectedly received two books from  O'Reilly. I really admired them. They sent two books (the first - 30$ and the second - 40$) to our Java user Group without any request from my side. It's so wonderful.
Anyway the main news are:
I've decided to create Java User Group Library
Anybody  can request any book from JUG Library and receive the book on our meeting but...
1) You have to return this book at the next meeting
2) You have to write your feedback and publish it on this blog

Also we have joined Manning User Group program and APRESS User Group program.
So, please, have a look at books list of these three publishers and send me letter which books would You like to read and I'll request them
Also We have joined partner programs of InformITWrox and Packt Publishing
Kind regards
