Finding my Bonus Chapters

I have been receiving some emails lately from folks that have bought my Snapshots to Great Shots books but have not been able to locate the bonus chapters.  For those that didn’t know, I wanted to include more information in the books but had to limit the page count to help keep the cost down so, as a bonus for those that purchased the books, Peachpit has made the bonus chapters available to anyone who registers their book on their site.  The only problem has been that some folks have not been able to find the chapters.  To help you out, I have written a short guide on how to reach the bonus content.  Be sure to go to and not Safari to access these chapters.

Go to the Peachpit site and click on the Account Sign In link. If you have already registered, log in.  If not, create a new account to get yourself registered.

1. Once logged in, click on the Account link at the top of the page.

2. Click on the Register a Product link.

3. Enter the ISBN and click the Submit button.  (The ISBN is located on the back of the book right above the bar code)

4. You should then see your registered book.  Click on the Access Bonus Content link.

5. Click on the chapter links to download the bonus chapters.

That’s all there is to it.  If you are still having difficulties, please send me a comment and I will see what I can do to help you out.

Bonus chapters are available for my Canon 50D, Rebel T1i, and Nikon D5000 books.

That’s it for this week.  Please keep the people of Haiti in your thoughts and if so inclined, send a prayer their way.  You can also donate $10 to Haiti relief through the Red Cross by texting “Haiti” to 90999 (details here).


  1. Thanks for the reminder!

    Jeff, I registered your book I bought yesterday at B&N at Peachtree, and there is no greened in area called “Access Bonus Content” like on my other books by Scott Kelby and David duChemin. Also wanted to thank you and Laurie for creating books that are not so expensive and making it affordable to buy books – both of your books are really helping me.

  3. Hey Jeff,
    I registered your book “Canon EOS Rebel T3i / 600D: From Snapshots to Great Shots” that arrived today from by following your steps and there’s no greened in area called “Access Bonus Content”. I’m looking for the “Pimp My Ride” and “T3i Video” bonus chapters you mentioned in the introduction. Thanks! ~Robb

    • Hi Robb,
      I dropped a note to my editor to ask when the chapters will be posted on the Peachpit site. I would think it should be very soon but I’ll be sure to put an announcement on the blog when they go live. Sorry for the wait.


  4. Hi Jeff, same here…cannot access the bonus chapters after registering the new “snapshots to greatshots t3i” on the Peachpit site. Thanks, great book! Lisa

    • Hi Lisa,
      My apologies for the bonus chapter problems. My editor says there was some technical glitch that messed up the links to the code that you had to enter. I’m not sure what all that means except that the chapter links aren’t showing up when the book is registered. They are working on it and I will be sure to let everyone know when they go live. Thanks for your patience.

    Hi Jeff, I am having trouble accessing the bonus chapters for the 550D?? Hopefully you still monitor this site?
