Sure some Dads want lawnmowers for Father's Day. Others desire golf clubs. But Geek Dads crave geeky stuff. And that's why we're celebrating Father's Day with a 40% discount.

Now you can give the Geek Dad in your life what he really wants--like The Geek Atlas or the Regular Expressions Cookbook--and save 40%*.

Save 40% on O'Reilly books, courses, workshops plus the OSCON and Velocity conferences. Simply use discount code DAD40 and choose overnight shipping.

And, don't forget MAKE Magazine's online store, Maker SHED. Get 20%* off all DIY kits, books, magazines and other fun stuff for the man that made you when you use code DAD40.

We're also sharing stories and posting photos of geeky Dads and Grandpas with their favorite tech books here. Please send us your fav pics to (by Friday, June 19). We'll be twittering about our Father's Day celebration, too. Please use #geekdad when you twitter.
