Books I would like to read 9/21/2010

Here is a list of the books I would like to sit down and spend some time reading front to back.

Let me know if you have one on your list that I would like.
Pthreads Programming: A POSIX Standard for Better Multiprocessing (O'Reilly Nutshell)
I've poked through this a bit, my buddy Phil lent me the book, and I would really like to get through it, maybe I'll knock a few chapters down this weekend if I don't have too much homework.

C Programming Language (2nd Edition) (K and R C, the definitive guide)
I borrowed this from the library at work, but only got a little into it, unfortunately work and school come first.

Mastering Regular Expressions
I borrowed this one from work, and got through the first 3 or 4 chapters, but then it started getting into the greedy etc matching and I kinda slacked off, I would like to finish this book as what I've learned from it so far has been INVALUABLE.

Linux Device Drivers, 3rd Edition
I have the second edition of this book, and it's a great book, but it only covers up to the Kernel version 2.4, the 3rd edition however covers up to 2.6 so that's great news. There is a free version of the book here: Linux Device Drivers 3rd Edition *Free

I'll give you my next list. If you've read these books give me your opinion, or maybe suggest a better one in place of the ones I've selected.
