I've used Safari Books Online in the past but their monthly costs have gone up a bit over the last year and they've made other changes to their plans. I was wondering if there were any other online book sites, what are you using and what are the pros / cons?

The flooring will be going down on top of a wood sub-floor. I've done some research and it seems that a nice engineered click flooring is our best option but we should still use chair mats under the rolling chairs. I installed and refinished hardwood floors for close to 10 years but that was almost 20 years ago so I have very little first hand experience with the newer products. I did install a laminate flooring in the upstairs bedrooms but that doesn't seem durable enough for a home office. I'm also not sure if we should float the floor or glue it down or what type of cushion / barrier to use if we do float it. My question for the Slashdot community is: If you've recently re-floored your home office, what type of flooring did you decide to go with and why? How durable is your new floor and is it wearing how you thought it would? If you aren't happy with how your floor came out, what would you change to make it 'right'?
