What books to read, web designer, mid-level?

Good evening, dear colleagues!
I can't call myself a professional, at the same time is not a beginner. Read a lot of books and articles, read old editions of these books: Steve Krug - don't make me think Jakob Nielsen - web design, Lebedev - mandership, and the like. At the same time, I constantly read articles on Habre or the Medium.

With all this, I feel insufficiently educated to feel some problems with typography, understanding of color, usability, and overall, in the aspects of design. I would like to hear the opinion of professionals than in 2018, you can fill in the gaps?

Solution
My mini list:
  • The art of color — Johannes Itten
  • Write, cut — Maxime Eliahou (the designer also should be able to)
  • About the font — Eric Spikerman
And a series of books:
  • emotional web design — Aaron Walter
  • Design is a job Mike Monteiro
  • Responsive web design — Ethan Marcotte
  • Mobile first — Luke Wroblewsky

I advise you not to read professional literature, and saved the time to sit and draw. 4 works in the portfolio — it is about nothing.
I have 3 years professionally engaged in the design, I have more than 100 works of different complexity, I now work in the Moscow Studio. I said that I am not a beginner, and time to work I have enough.

Your answer is absolutely not the topic. - laury62 commented on June 5th 19 at 21:49
,
and I'm 10 years in the design, so what?

>I said that I am not a beginner
Your portfolio says otherwise. You need no books to read, and a lot of paint and to experiment constantly checking the design for strength. - Darrin.Daniel commented on June 5th 19 at 21:52
Great. Thanks for the tips on the toaster are always asking for JS, "Why did I pass the object to the function, and if it's changing, it's changing, and if you pass a string, then no." If people read smart books, half of the questions, loads of bugs would be on sites was not. If you have time to read books, must read books, not to honokowai at random. This also applies to design. Some "courses" and practice will not go far, you need to be able to combine. - peggie_Aufderh commented on June 5th 19 at 21:55
nice, and for 10 years you have not read any books? You can't judge the level of my works, seeing only 4 of the layout of my colleagues of the good studios have repeatedly noted the quality of my projects, say the same thing and customers. However, I feel that not to end well they are doing, so asked for advice. If you offer me only to practice, so your 10 years of experience mean nothing. - laury62 commented on June 5th 19 at 21:58

Judging by your portfolio, you need to start over with the basics. Probably the best option would be, the old Soviet book.
For example, "Sidorov A. A., Estrin V. A. (ed.), foundations of Soviet design books"
