Great sharing buddy. I don’t read books and rely on tutorials and articles to update myself with latest trends and technologies. But in my life i have just one book related to designing “The Elements of Typographic Style” it is really a great book.

There’s a SitePoint book I like: The Principles of Beautiful Web Design

They have others and there are obviously core books that are helpful - Adobe offers a variety of good ones depending on what you’re looking for.
