- For a different angle on the whole shebang: Gatewatching by Axel Bruns: not the most famous of books - perhaps because it is so far ahead of its time. Gatewatching looks at peer to peer publishing, and non-traditional news organisations: the likes of Slashdot, Kuro5hin, and Wikinews, among others. An essential read for an insight into how news reporting can be organised completely differently. See also: Digitizing the News by Pablo Boczkowski.
- For an authoritative history: Online News by Stuart Allan: a refreshingly rigorous look at some of the most famous moments in online journalism - Rathergate; 9/11; Drudge. Helps supply the reality behind the mythology. See also: Online Journalism by Jim Hall.
- For an essential challenge to your basic journalistic values in the new media age: Online Journalism Ethics by Friend & Singer: poses the questions we should all be asking ourselves, and is brave enough not to supply the answer.
- For the definitive guide to citizen journalism: We The Media by Dan Gillmor: doesn't sit on the wall, but then Gillmor would be the first to point out that objectivity is dead.
- For a good introduction to the basics of writing for the web: Journalism Online by Mike Ward: now looking dated with its chapter on HTML but the fundamentals still apply. Bring yourself up to date with Convergence Journalism by Janet Kolodzy or Convergent Journalism by Stephen Quinn.
- For a guide to interactive storytelling: Flash Journalism by Mindy McAdams : covers the ideas behind good multimedia interactives as well as the practicalities.
