Thanks for the reading list Blaine. With the explosive nature of the web, reading coding books have become something of a forgotten tradition.

You're welcome.

I'm not sure it's true that people don't read books anymore. Newspapers and magazines, yes. But lots of people must be reading programming books. The publishers would stop releasing them if nobody was buying them.
