    I'm reading Burn Your Portfolio. I didn't actually go to design school, so it's not as upsetting for me as it was to my REAL designer friends. :)

    Considering that most of the "helpful" books I got when I started school (5-6 years ago) are now mostly obsolete, I'm sticking to visually appealing ones. I like the Little Book of Lettering -- it's a great insight into how different designers in their different mediums accomplish their work.

    I'm reading The Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan! I love it, but it's a lot to get through... 15 books. I'm on book 6. Anyone else a fan? :)
