September 6th is Read a Book Day.
One well-known thing about me is my love of reading. I read anything I can get my hands on. I get that from my parents who are voracious readers themselves. Reading is a great way to keep on top of trends or changes in the industry as well as escaping for a couple of hours. I’m currently in the middle of reading two books, Joomla 3 Explained and Beach Lawyer. You may recognize the first title. A couple of weeks ago I wrote about a contest to win the book with the winner being pulled from those who registered for JoomlaDay Chicago. The contest came from my reading the book and finding it helpful as it reminded me of the power that core Joomla!, without a lot a of extensions or plugins, can be. It is also great prep for the certification exam.
Here's a shortlist of some of my favorite reads to get you thinking about that book you've been longing to pick up:
- Joomla - Joomla 3 Explained by Stephen Burge
- Marketing - Purple Cow by Seth Godin
- Business - Good to Great by Jim Collins
- SEO - SEO for Growth by John Jantsch and Phil Singleton
- Web Usability - Don't Make Me Think by Steve Krug
- Typography - Webfont Handbook by Bram Stein
