If I could also mention that the UX Book Club also has groups forming in
Canberra, Sydney, Sunshine Coast, NYC, Twin Cities, Toronto, Tokyo, and
London with others in discussion. The http://uxbookclub.org site has the
beginnings of each group, but - more importantly - it's a place for you to
record your interest in joining the group forming in your city - or starting
up your own if your city is currently not listed there.

> Hi all,
> IxDA Washington DC now has a UX Book Club. We have a page on the UX Book

> *Description*:
> The UX Book Club Washington
> D.C.<%20http://uxbookclub.org/doku.php?id=washington_dc>seeks to
> enhance the abilities and knowledge of user experience
> professionals from information architects and interaction designers to
> visual designers and usability specialists to augment their understanding

> Subjects of interest to this club span design theory, design research and
> user experience research practices and processes. The books include the
> strategy and business of design, UX design theory and history, methodology,
> usability research, and the ethics of UX professionals, while networking

> In this first year, we will read, review, and discuss *8 books*. Moderation
