I'm published! (kind-of...)

After having had it on my Amazon wish list for about a year, I finally picked up my copy of Chris Sells' "Windows Forms Programming in C#". Being a server-side Java developer by day, I've put off getting this book for quite a while, despite the excellent reviews it got everywhere. Then when a few weeks ago I got stuck on some WinForms stuff for SharpReader, I decided it was about time to get me a copy. Just browsing through it shortly, I see now that it wasn't just "about time", it was really "way overdue"! It contains well over 600 pages of very useful information on Windows Forms and should help me a lot in future SharpReader development; thanks Chris!

One of the first things I noticed was the 8 color pages in the middle with various pictures of WinForms apps and controls that are discussed in the book. Much to my surprise, the very last one (showing the use of the NotifyIcon component) contains the SharpReader icon. Way cool!

The book is incredible, I'll definitely agree with you there. However, so is SharpReader. :)

I like SharpReader. In fact, I like it so much that I am happy to contribute code for it. In absence of that, it would be really great to have a section on the main page to request new features.
