In September 2001, Safari Books Online began supplying digital book
content over the Internet long before digital reading was sexy and in
demand. At the start, the on-demand digital library service offered
subscriber access via the PC to a few hundred titles from O'Reilly Media
and Pearson. Ten years later, their digital library has more than 17,000
books, videos, and interactive learning tools that can be accessed on
tablets, computers, and any mobile device with a browser. Congrats
Safari!

To celebrate, they're offering the following:
-Current subscribers are encouraged to share their stories about using
Safari Books Online by leaving a comment on the blog post here:
