[Baypiggies] Book Suggestions?

Get a Python book maybe "Text Processing in Python". The Django docs and
community are really good and moving pretty fast so any book would just be out of
date too soon.

Or, if you don't have a book on regular expressions, "Mastering Regular
Expressions" while not specifically Python is just a great reference to have on
hand. The problem with regexes is that they are nice, succinct and powerful so
people try to use them for everything. But once you learn to use them where they
are appropriate they are a truly valuable addition to the toolbox.
