I love reading books and I am a bibliophile (great lover of books). I have also noticed that many IT profesionals don’t like reading books as they have someone who does all the work for them, and provides direct solutions, so they do not need to put long hours in reading and learning; thanks to Gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooogle.com 🙁
