The Photoshop Book for Digital Photographers - Scott Kelby

(I'd tell you my favorites for Fiction/reading pleasure, but I know tastes can be so varied. I prefer to invest in "Reference" books as I will use them over and over whereas I will not read a story more than once, so I get most of them from the library. I keep just enough Fiction to make my bookshelves look pretty :)

If you've been feeling a little blue, check out this book.

I admit that I haven't read it, but the customer reviews are as entertaining as the book description.

Yes, I've looked through that book...that would have been a great purchase!

I ended up buying Shake Hands With The Devil: The Failure of Humanity in Rwanda by Romeo Dallaire and Truth Needs No Ally: Inside Photojournalism by Howard Chapnick.

Just thought I'd let you know that I got the Romeo Dallaire book last week and have read a good enough chunk to recommend it to all of you.

On Photography - Susan Sontag

I just finished reading this book and I find it very insightful as to the meaning behind photographs and the taking of photos. This book is a critique of photography as art, philosophy, and psychology. I've found her observations of the effects of using a camera on the photographer to be quite on the mark.

I've put Shake Hands With the Devil on my reading list since several people have recommended it to me.
