I'll see that recommendation, and raise you one:
The Unix CD Bookshelf

It has html versions of Unix Power Tools and several other ORA Unix
books.  This is particularly cool for UPT, as it is so heavily cross

Another bonus is that it is easily copied to one's hard drive, which
makes carrying several swell reference books around as easy as carrying
one's laptop.

Used copies on Amazon are well worth it.  Your local public library may
have a copy.
