I'm putting together a list to hopefully help those who are seeking a textbook to use.
Please feel free to offer suggestions/corrections/etc. I'm starting with math and physics for now but will branch out into other subjects after having a solid foundation. At some point in the future, I hope to have reviews or descriptions about each book, but that could take a while. Math Calculus:
Linear Algebra:
Differential Equations:
Analysis:
Algebra:
Topology:
Geometry:
Graph Theory:
Number Theory:
Differential Geometry
 If you have anything to add, please post it! I will add more later.

Thank you for those contributions, wisvuze :) Are there any categories for math that anyone would like to see added?

A Cumulative List of Math Textbooks
do you have to see the books in the following order?
for example calculus > linear algebra>differential equation?? can you read one or two books from each categories?

For a full and "accurate" coverage of differential equations, you should definitely see calculus AND linear algebra first. ( Unless you want to learn them simultaneously )

I don't see how naming 20 textbooks on one subject is going to help anyone. Are you trying to name every book available on every subject? 2 or 3 for each subject at each level would be much more helpful.
