Subject Re: [VOTE] List CloudStack related books on the website

While I appreciate the don't-play-favorites sentiments, I do feel that we
are over thinking this issue. If favoritism becomes an issue, we can
revisit. At that point, I'd imagine that there would be half-a-dozen books
on CloudStack and listing/not listing them won't make much difference --
so we could remove ALL books. We're not there yet.

At this point in time, it is appropriate to support such efforts.
