A few good portable books you could carry are Code Complete 2nd Edition and C++ Game Programming 3rd Edition.

The rest I keep on my kindle, a few of my favorites:
Agile Web Development with Rails 4th edition
O'Reilly Learning Perl 6th Edition
The Linux Command Line

Have they started printing those books in a smaller format? Are they globally available or only in certain countries with shall we say "lax" copyright laws?

Ah! I didn't get it at first. :cheers:

I guess I would have recognized it if the book recommendation were: The Art of Computer Programming, Volumes 1-4A Boxed Set.
