Can you suggest a good text?

Hi folks,

I'm in the process of ordering a large number of physics texts and supplemental learning material. I'm posting what I plan on ordering so as yo get your feedback and perhaps some suggestions for other texts to buy. Here is the list so far


Schaum's Outline of Quantum Mechanics, Second Edition -- ISBN-10: 0071623582 -- $15.69
 
Schaum's Outline of Lagrangian Dynamics -- ISBN-10: 0070692580 -- $14.51

Schaum's Outline of Continuum Mechanics -- ISBN-10: 0070406634 -- $16.09

Schaum's Outline of Theory and Problems of Theoretical Mechanics -- ISBN-10: 0070843570 -- $124.20
 
Schaum's Outline of Classical Electrodynamics (Classical Theoretical Physics) -- ISBN-10: 038794799X -- $58.69
 
Lagrangian and Hamiltonian Mechanics: Solutions to the Exercises, by M.G. Calkin -- ISBN-10: 9810237820 --  $38.22
 
Classical Mechanics, John R. Taylor -- ISBN-10: 189138922X -- $71.95

Introductory Nuclear Physics, by Kenneth S. Krane - ISBN-10: 047180553X -- $64.99
Introduction to Quantum Mechanics (2nd Edition), David Griffiths, ISBN-10: 0131118927 -- $119.49
Introduction to Electrodynamics (4th Edition), David Griffiths, ISBN-10: 0321856562 -- $129.53

I know your Relativity is way beyond mine - but I like Schutz's GR and Wolfgang Rindler's Relativity, and Barbara Ryden's Intro to Cosmology.
