Technical Books that I’m reading

I don't know about anybody else, but I'm reading an awful lot of computer books nowadays. According to this article, a typical programmer will read one technical book per year. Seriously?!!? When I look at the huge range of technologies that I have to master just to keep up, I find that very hard to believe.

Here's my list of books I'm currently reading –

Silverlight 4 in Action

Hello! Silverlight

Agile Development Practices

Rework

I'm Okay, You're Okay

The last one isn't a computing book per se', but I think it has some great insights into office politics and personal interdynamics. I've already ordered Steve Krug's Don't Make Me Think, which sounds like a great source of information on good user interface design.

I've really enjoyed reading all of the books in that list. They aren't just informative, I've found they're also interesting and fun to read. It's certainly a refreshing change from the dry and boring textbooks I used to read in University 15 years ago.
