I noticed that a lot of questions related to books and book recommendations are getting downvoted and closed. This question suggests that some people have negative attitude towards such type of questions.
Most of the book related questions have common sense in them and I love them. Usually there are tonnes of books and it is hard to understand which one is the most helpful, unless you have been here for ages and know all the stuff. Books questions are mostly general, open-minded and have relationship to software development. People who tend to downvote and close questions don't seem to be interested in books and do not allow other members to answer the question.
Q: Why not to let books-related question be here and stay open-minded?
