What are "real books"?
I'm aware of these kinds of books, which would make sense to read:
- agile books (from XP series to books like Agile Coaching)
- software development classics, which go beyond any specific methodology (like Wiegers' Software Requirements)
- non-agile process books (like The Unified Software Development Process from Jacobson)
- more technology related books (like JUnit Recipes, TDD by Example, Growing OO Software Guided by tests)
- softskills books (e.g. coaching, facilitation)
