    Books to read

    Anyone have any recommendations on books to read, whether it be fiction/non fiction or anything academical? I'm out of books and currently looking for something new to read.

    The Fifth Wave was an excellent book, I would recommend it.

    Gone Girl is also an excellent book - definitely a messed up outcome but a great alternative to the happy-fairytale-ending.

    Ten Years in the Tub by Nick Hornby is a good afternoon-book.

    Anything by Orwell, Dickens, Jack London, P.G. Wodehouse, Huxley or Mark Twain.

    Philip K. Dick has some interesting novels as well.

    Definitely seconding this. It's applicable to any client service industry as well, not just (web) design.

    Other than that… startt with A Song of Ice and Fire book 1

    I discovered the impressive collection of books on design and Typography from Rockport Publishers - i think it's a must read.
