Building a library of books, need suggestions

As the title says I'm putting together a library of books pertaining to my fields of interest and I need some suggestions. I'm looking for math texts, specifically those pertaining to Calculus and Statistics. Programming texts, not for any specific language, more things like SICP or the dragon book on compiler design. Texts on electrical engineering and those on physics.

So far all I have on my shopping list are SICP, the compiler design book, and Stewart's Essential Calculus. Any and all suggestions pertaining to the above are welcome and appreciated!

If you're interested in OS design and theory, then Operating System Concepts by Silberschatz is good. Goes deep into theory and the whys of everything, and also has plenty of sample code (heavy Linux focus with the code) and a bunch of programming problems you can do.
