Need Library Suggestions

What are good books to consider for additions to a Woodworking library?
So far I have: 1. Measure Twice, Cut Once by Jim Tolpin 2. Band Saw Handbook by Mark Duginske
I need general Woodworking books, and information on gluing and sharpening as well as other Woodworking information.

Philly: Just about anything you like from the Taunton Press (publishers of Fine Woodworking) will satisfy.

I forget the title and author, but something like "Fixing and Avoiding Woodworking Mistakes" by some Polish-sounding guy with too many Z's and W's in his name. Nclewzrycy? Something like that. Google, I looked it up and mentioned it within the past six months.

As far as the original question, folks have covered it pretty well, but I'm not sure anyone mentioned Tage Frid. He covers a lot of ground in his two-volume set _Teaches Woodworking_. Among more recent books, Taunton published a couple of good general interest books last year (or was it earlier this year?): _The Complete Illustrated Guide to Joinery_ by Gary Rogowski and _The Complete Illustrated Guide to Furniture and Cabinet Construction_ by Andy Rae.
Another book I have on my list is _Woodworking: The Right Technique: Three Practical Ways to Do Every Job-And How to Choose the One That's Right for You_ by Bob Moran. It's supposed to have Neander and Normite approaches to the same job. (So at least 1/3 of it will be useful. :-)

Larry,
I will be initially building shelving, counter tops, and bookcases. Once I master those I will try drawer assembly and possibly box assembly.

I've gone one up on Jim Tolpin. I seem to use the 'measure three times, cut twice' philosophy.
I read a book recently called "Tools of the Trade" by Jeff Taylor. Very very good. It was shades of Tom Watson (or vice versa). Not much, uh, technical information, but an outstanding read. He tells stories of everything from Yankee Screwdrivers to a 3" slick. After all, most of us aren't in this for 'production.' It's a journey, rather than a destination.

Check the local library, they might have something for you to borrow and see if you want it.
I find many good woodworking books over there, from the furniture makers encyclopedia to Norm Abrams books to books about collections of good projects from the editors of woodworking magazines.
