I'm reading The Design of Everyday Things right now. It is an amazingly good book. The examples are awesome. It really is changing the way I look at everything.

The Design of Everyday Things is cool, indeed. Norman's a great author who keeps questioning what we take for granted.

However, if you are looking for something more pragmatic, Steve's Don't Make me Think and JJG's The Elements of User Experience should be the top of your reading list, especially on web design.

I'm 11 pages into the Design of Everyday things and loving it so far. Thank you for the recommendation.

I need to second your recommendation of The Humane Interface. I reread it often.

That last one is more about systems analysis than user experience.
