I love seeing io9 name checked on books. I always know the book is going to be quality. Is there any greater indication of how awesome a book is going to be then io9 saying so and the publisher putting that on the cover? I've gotten two books lately with io9 book blurbs and it makes me happy every time I see 'em.
io9: making me spend money on books since 2008 (as if I needed the help).
