On Renting, as Opposed to Buying, the Bluebook
The Bluebook is still in its 18th edition. The Bluebook people will sell you a copy for about $25. They'll also let you subscribe for $25 per year and for $15 per year for the next two years. The subscription means that you'd have your up-to-date Bluebook with you anytime you could get online. The subscription is a greater outlay of money than using the book. I also have the experience that flipping through books is practically always faster than waiting for pages to download. The subscription will be the way to go for true road warriors-- people who actually draft substantive legal documents as they make their business trips.
