What UX and design books are on my shelf?

Estimated reading time: 2 minutes

I’ve become a bit of a hoarder of UX/Design books. I prefer the printed book when it comes to these for some reason... Probably because I can bookmark with post-it notes whenever I read something inspirational.

Finding the time to read them all is quite a challenge though... There are some I’ve read from cover to cover, some I am part-way through, and some I haven’t even begun to read yet.

My UX and design books:

I’m currently reading ‘Just Enough Research’. It’s a brilliant resource for those who are fairly new to user research. It’s a must-read in my opinion.

“Erika Hall distills her experience into a brief cookbook of research methods. Learn how to discover your competitive advantages, spot your own blind spots and biases, understand and harness your findings, and why you should never, ever hold a focus group. You’ll start doing good research faster than you can plan your next pitch.”

A number of these UX and design books would greatly help in forming a UX strategy, covering topics such as user research, user story mapping and usability.
