Extracting the list of O'Reilly Animals

O’Reilly lists almost all of the animals from their covers, even if “animals” is a bit of a loose term that encompasses “Catholic Priests” (Ethics of Big Data) or “Soldiers or rangers, with rifles” (SELinux). You can page through that list 20 results at a time, or search it. But, as with most lists I see online, I want to grab the entire list at once. Show me a paginated resources and I’ll show you the program I automated to unpaginate it.
