Below is a list of books I'm planning to buy, I'd very much appreciate if people gave their opinions on this list (i.e. which ones are good, wich ones aren't and so on):
Handbook for Sound Engineers (Ballou)
 Microphones: Design and Application (Burroughs)
 Sound Recording Handbook (Woram)
 Acoustics (Beranek)
 Recording Music on Location (Bartlett) (This is according to Bartlett himself the replacement for his Stereo mic techs book)
 Tonmeister technology (Dickretter)
 Microphone Book (Eargle)
Thank you!

Old thread,
but I just got a really nice Microphones book and would like to share it,
it's called "Witnesses of words: how 20th century microphones made history".


It has really high quality photos and some interesting info on most of the microphones made in the last century.
It's a must have for any microphone lover, you can buy it directly from the author:




As for advice on a book with mic techniques, I really like the "Recording Engineer's Handbook",
it has a nice section with advice and micing techinics for a lot of different instruments:
