  16. ZACHARIA, G. & ZAPHIRIS, P. (eds.) (2006), User-Centered Computer Aided Language Learning, Idea Group Publishing.
All these books can be found at Amazon.
To make the list shorter, I would say that books dated before 2003 need some updating to include new generation web tools (podcasting, blogging, video sharing, wiki collaboration, ...).
Beatty (2003) is a good book on research topics on CALL. Numbers 3 and 6 are collections of articles presented at professional associations conventions. Szendeffy (2005) is an introductory book for teachers who want to start to use computers to teach languages. Although it was published last year, it doesn’t mention new web tools.
I haven’t read Smith & Baber (2005) and Zacharia & Zaphiris (2006). They haven’t arrived from Amazon yet. I hope Santa Claus or the Magic Kings (January, 6th) bring them to me. I promise to review them.

Hi Jose Luis,

one the books I found quite clarifying and useful was the one from Mike Levy.
He has recently published a new one that I would like to read, but don't see it in Amazon.
2006. (with G. Stockwell). CALL Dimensions: Options and Issues in Computer Assisted Language Learning. New Jersey: Lawrence Erlbaum & Associates.
let me know if you find the way to buy it.

As far as any student can see, smart thoughts as mental activity may involve individual skills needed at college. Young people are looking for unique example research papers for students here as we all hope professional writers of such high level possess creative thinking style no matter what the topic of the research would be. High school audience can make it best to make the educational process more or less simple.
