There are books that every close-up magician will need to procure. Do not disregard beginner's books. I learned a great mentalism trick from Bruce Elliot's The Best in Magic that I used for my IBM entrance exam that wowed the audience of wizened, crusty magicians who seem to know every trick in the book...as it were.
I highly suggest the following:
Jean Hugard and Frederic Braues Expert Card Technique
Jean Hugard The Royal Road to Card Magic
Jean Hugard Encyclopedia of Card Tricks
Karl Fulves Self-Working Card Magic
Bobo's Modern Coin Magic
