After spending 8 years in programming world, now I am realizing that I didn't read any book at all.

I might have read few pages of some of the books but don't remember.
My source of knowledge was MSDN, CodeProject, blah, blah, blah... and more improtantly

I always preferred topic specific articles and videos after my college days.

Life is a computer program and every one is the programmer of his own life.
