5 Books for the month

These days I am spending a lot of time reading new books (Sitting on the floors of starmark, scanning different books, is fun). This Saturday I spent almost 2 hours scanning the business books. I am reading a lot about usability these days. Apart from sharing the ideas at almost9months.com, I am reading following books this month:

  1. Don’t make me think:
    don't make me think
    I am done with it. You can get a summary of it at http://www.amazon.com/review/R2RD7UWC4FFBUL.
  2. The Starfish and the Spider by Ori Brafman and Rod A. Beckstrom:
    The Starfish and the Spider
    It was little hard read for initial pages but later it is a smooth ride. Good for a tech person as it has examples from tech world. You can read some of the reviews to get more about it.
  3. Why We Buy: The Science Of Shopping by Paco Underhill:
    Why we buy
    Just read some pages. Good. I also say another book by the same author, call of the mall.
  4. Information Architecture for the World Wide Web
    Designing Large-scale Web Sites
    by By Louis Rosenfeld & Peter Morville:
    Information Architecture for the World Wide Web
Designing Large-scale Web Sites
    I am loving this book. It needs time but surely an authority book for all web developers.
  5. Purple cow Vs How would you move mount Fuji
    purple cow
    This is good book. I liked many of his books. I read few more at starmarks this Saturday. I may not read this book this month as I am loving “How Would You Move Mount Fuji? Microsoft’s Cult of the Puzzle – How the World’s Smartest Company Selects the Most Creative Thinkers”.

So I may not be able to blog this month as well. I have some post under draft, “You feel frustrated when you are frustrated“, “a webby advice for airtel“, “Soon I will be meeting Anil Ambani” and some more. Have a great Monday!
