What five cookbooks would you keep?

I'm doing a little late spring cleaning and realized I have over forty cookbooks, some still stored in boxes from a move and other in my pantry. Since I keep my go to recipes in a binder and don't use a majority these cookbooks very much, I've decided to donate many with the idea of keeping only five.

So far I've kept...
1) Bread Baker's Apprentice
2) Julia Child's Way to Cook
3) Old red binder Betty Crocker Cookbook (nostalgia)
4) Charcuterie
5) ?

If you could only keep 5 cookbooks what would you keep?
General cooking?
Ethnic or specialty cooking?
Would you even keep five cookbooks?

Just curious :-)
