They make books about magic now?
Magic is doing improbable things with odd items that, under normal circumstances, would be unnessecary and quite often undesirable.

The only 5 my dad hasn't barrowed and never returned yet. The rest have been hidden some where, but I’m not sure exactly where and neither is he. That’s what I get for having a dad who likes to use your stuff before his own. I guess it is because my stuff is cooler an up-to-date.

Maybe nothing. Because,
If I could keep only 5 magic books, I will die.
Sorry I could not resist.

In keeping with the original question about MAGIC books and not confusing it with MENTALISM books I would keep:

The Trick Brain - Fitzkee (the bible for magicians)
Tarbells Course
Close-up Illusions - Ouellet
Magic of Slydini
Close-up card magic - Lorayne

Considering that I only have MWCCIM, and RRTCM, I guess it would be those two.
