Default Follow up books

Have you got any thoughts on follow ups to your book? Or maybe books to read before or in parallel (I am too late, but I want good reading tips )?

I have read great things about Pro ASP.Net MVC 2, but I want to wait for the Pro MVC 3 book. (although it isn't fully written by Sanderson anymore)

I just got Growing Object Oriented Software, Guided by Tests and will read that one.

What do you think about those (if you've read them) or have you got some other tips?

I am mostly interested in being able to set up new applications (or a general framework/guideline for them) and doing it Agile. Target technologies are MVC, EF4 (preferably, nHibernate would do) and doing it TDD/BDD.

Hi MrFixxiT,

I recently finished reading Growing Object Oriented Software, Guided by Tests and thought it was great. Other good reads that I can recommend are:
  • Agile Principles, Patterns, and Practices in C# by Robert C. Martin
  • Domain-Driven Design: Tackling Complexity in the Heart of Software by Eric Evans
  • Working Effectively with Legacy Code by Michael C. Feathers
  • Applying Domain-Driven Design and Patterns by Jimmy Nilsson
  • The RSpec Book: Behaviour Driven Development with RSpec, Cucumber, and Friends (still good even though not aimed at .net)
I don't read many framework specific books any more, although I did read Sandersons Pro ASP.Net MVC 2 which was good and I am sure his MVC 3 book will be just as good.
