I am involving myself in reading book these days rather than reading blogs. Here are 2 free e-books, one from Microsoft Press with a valuable insights on Cloud, Fundamental of Azure and the other from Telerik, The Developer's Guide To The New .NET. I encourage you to read both the books, but if you are not about cloud then you should read the book from Telerik.
