reading recommendations please

Hi all:  I'm transitioning to Interaction Design.  I'm currently pursuing a Masters in Library and Information Science. 

I think I need to do some self-study to suppliment what I'm learning in my program.  So I am soliciting suggestions for books to read; topics might include:

 

Interaction Design -- and I'm interested in materials that touch on ID beyond the computer.

Cognitive Psychology

Color Theory

General design books that might be helpful

how do I become employable?

HI all:  I tried posting this question some time ago but got very few responses.  Hopefully this title is catchier!

I'm transitioning from many years of no career in particular, to a developing interest in Interaction Design and Information Architecture.  I'm currently pursing a masters in Library and Information Science. 

Most job postings I've read want at least 3-5 years of experience.  HOW DO I GET THAT??  How do I start to get the experience I need so that eventually I will be attractive to employers?
