My absolute favorite is Vogue Knitting: The Ultimate Knitting Book.
It has everything in it. I have recommended this book before and everyone that has it loves it too.

First off, I love the videos here. . . . they've really helped me. For a book, I like the Knitter's Companion by Interweave Press. It's bound on a ring so you can flip the pages over and lay them flat in front of you!
On My Needles: Harry Potter House Scarf and Hat (Gryffindor, of course) for my 9 year old Harry Potter Fanatic!

Planned Works: Baby Blankie for my other son's teacher, who is now expecting as well!

Hat and scarf for my 7 year old son, who is not a Harry Potter fan, so they will probably be in blue, his favorite color!

A "Posh Pooch" Sweater for my four legged baby, Ruby!!!!

A scarlet and grey "Ohio State" throw for my DH for Christmas.

I'm RubySue on Ravelry!!!
