I don't fear not getting books back but apart from that:

Object Oriented Software Construction
Bertrand Meyer

Denkfallen und Programmierfehler (in German)
Timm Grams
http://www.amazon.com/dp/3540520392

and maybe also

Mastering Regular Expressions
Jeffrey E.F. Friedl
http://oreilly.com/catalog/9780596528126/

Kind regards
