Graphic Design student looking for best Type books

I am currently a graphic design student and I am looking to bring my typography skills/knowledge up to a higher level. I'd love any recommendations of must have books about type. Which typefaces/fonts are the best/most widely accepted and why, etc. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

(For the record: Thomas and I agree on more things these days. :-)

Most are journal articles, but there are some good books as well.

Yes, Hrant, you are mellowing a bit as you age. :P

The Tracy book is out of print and crazy expensive right now. Lawson is still as good as ever, though!
