So I am really looking to expand the home brewing library, are there any books (other than ones by papazian, palmer, and zanishef) that this community would recomend?

Ray Daniel's Designing Great Beers has been a great help. He sets the parameters for how to work on styles of beer. I look to Daniel's when I want to change something up in a beer style.

If you like British ales, Graham Wheeler's Brew Your Own British Real Ale shows how HB'ing in the UK differs from North America (had to say that being a Canuck ).

I'd also be interested in other titles.

I've read just about every major homebrew book out there -- three stand out:

Designing Great Beers, How to Brew, Brewing Classic Styles

In my opinion, all the rest are on a step-below. Still worth the read, but not nearly as rewarding.

I've really enjoyed Randy Mosher's Radical Brewing. Lots of fun facts, tips on technique, and recipes for many beer styles, including historical brews.

Another vote for Designing Great Beers by Ray Daniels and I need to throw in a vote for Greg Noonan's New Brewing Lager Beer, not just for lagers and the info in there is great.
