Perhaps we should create a page listing various C/C++/WinAPI/DirectX/OpenGL/Unix/Game programming/Socket/etc books. We could perhaps have a short description of each book, from people that have read it and would like to give it a review, and a rating system on a scale of 10 points would definitely be great. That way, we could rate books that we read/submit new books to the list, and people looking for good books could take a look at the list and the rankings.
A sticky has been suggested before, but it doesn't give us any nice way to rank various books.
