Ah yeah... SmashingMagazine has stellar books (I own one), but to have a bundle of their article for free?! You need to snag a copy while the snagging is good.

Quote

The eBook contains the best articles that have been published on Smashing Magazine in the last five years — and by “best,” we mean the most useful, most interesting or most inspiring. The articles have been carefully edited, proofread and updated for your convenience and reading pleasure on your eBook reader.

Yup - I have the first SmashingBook... it is a dense bugger that doesn't spare on cramming as much information as possible between those covers. Ha..
