Knitting and crochet titles: Top 3?

Ah, c'mon. Toss me a bone, here. I'm working on a story about new and classic knitting titles and could really use some input beyond the confines of my 10' x 10' office.

If you were building a knitting and crochet library--money is no object--what would you include? Knitting Without Tears? Barbara Walker? Debbie Bliss baby books? The Harmony Guides? The Harlot?

What would you put on your shelves?

Only three books?!! Okay..here are my top 3:

Knitting Workshop - Elizabeth Zimmerman, so many patterns & info.

Last Minute Knitted Gifts- Joelle Hoverson, because I love it.

Knitting Rules! Stephanie Pearl McPhee - cause it has the sock recipe in it.

Well, I haven't been knitting, so I'm not really one to ask, but if I had to, I'd take one of those books that shows you <i>all</i> the stitches. <a href="www.amazon.com/.../ref=pd_sim_b_1">Like this one, maybe.</A>

Hmm. Sorry, I assumed your comment field could handle HTML. Link works, anyway!

If only three books:
Knitting workshop by Zimmerman
Knitting Design by Deborah Newton
and one of Barbara Walker's Treasury of Knitting Patterns.  
And if more than three Knitting Rules by the Yarn Harlot and Knitting in the Old Way by Pricilla Gibson-Roberts.
