Sock your eyeballs on the horde of questions tagged books on Stack Overflow. Clearly this is a honeypot for programmers to rifle through their desks, pantries and basements and post whatever tomes tickle their fancy and use for pillows at night. Nobody goes around actively curating them into sanity after they jump into multiple pages.
Let's all move these into their respective tag wikis if they're paired up with a programming language or pattern and kill the ones that are left lying around.
Take for the slaughter, What is the best Python book for experienced programmers?.
Looking at the python tag wiki, we see a very standard, "this is how you tag, this is what's current and here are some starter links".
But we're missing out on all the refined sugar laden in that book list that would greatly make that tag wiki a whole lot more informative for being a right and proper place to kick start reading about said language.
And others still, ill-fit for the question model and crying out to be curated into a sane section on their tag wikis. Book lists such as:
These book lists don't belong as questions. They belong as tag wiki sections.
Shall we go forth and make sense?
