I used to read a lot of books when I first entered the job market, around 20 years ago. Books were an absolute necessity, especially as a reference. There was no Google... :)
I don't anymore, mainly because software/tools/frameworks/... change so fast nowadays, books do get outdated really quickly.
I've noticed I can learn most of the stuff from online docs, articles and blogs. And lately I've also started enjoying the more technical Youtube videos. There's some really quality stuff on there!
