>A variety of books are available now, and I wanted to write a roundup

>you like, I hope you'll e-mail me and let me know.
>These books are not suited to a Web production course -- they are
>NOT about how to build a Web site, write HTML or use software.
>However, some are better suited for a theory or survey course
>ABOUT online journalism, while others would work well in a course
>on DOING journalism online.
>I included two textbooks on reporting as examples of how more of
