Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

This question already has an answer here:

Normally I would ask on Stack Overflow, but after reading the rules I am positive that it is not the right place.

I am not even sure if this is the right place to ask this "meta" question?

Nowhere. Recommendation questions (afaik) are off-topic within the entire network. – Bart May 17 '13 at 18:07
The only place would be an appropriate chatroom. Broad recommendation questions (about books or anything else) simply don't work with the Q&A philosophy and format of the site. Nothing inherently wrong with these questions, but Stack Exchange is focused on something else: practical, answerable questions based on actual problems that you face. – Yannis May 17 '13 at 18:14
Book recommendation questions about databases specifically are most likely welcome in The Heap - where the over-arching topic is databases but we talk about a broad range of things. – Aaron Bertrand May 17 '13 at 18:40

Currently there is no Stack Exchange site where you can ask about recommendations. That does not fit a Q&A site. We don't want answers getting outdated or being subjective.

Since today there is a brand new site for Software Recommendations.
