Wish list of books - need suggestions

I've got a big list of books that I own. Here is what I intend to purchase in the next set. I am looking for suggestions on what would make useful reading? I am open to all categories of fiction/non-fiction/technical books. It would help if you point me to a review or provide me your own review comments

Enumerative Combinatorics - volume 1 (second edition)

The second edition is out and available at math.mit.edu/~rstan/ec/ec1.pdf


The book is extremely well written, although I've forgotten and probably never read a few of the topics mentioned in chapter 1, like one dimensional complete local ring. From where I stand at the moment, completing chapter 1 and understanding the twelve fold way will be quite an accomplishment :)


Do checkout the book. The first chapter is 221 pages with 203 exercises at the end.
