I'm reading my third year of a Swedish engineering degree and we are about to read Statistical Mechanics. The scope of this course is Thermodynamics (although we have already had a small course in it), Statistical Mechanics and some Quantum statistics.

The course book is "Concepts in Thermal Physics" (2nd) by Blundell : https://www.amazon.com/Concepts-Thermal-Physics-2nd-Second/dp/B004Y41264/ref=sr_1_3?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1350887012&sr=1-3&keywords=Concepts+in+Thermal+Physics+2nd.

However, I find myself regretting buying most of my textbooks, that's why I'm posting here now :)

My question is: Are there any really good textbooks on these subjects? They need not cover all the subjects in this course, I'm more interested in buying books that is fun to have in my bookshelf even after the course. What I'm really asking is: what the 'bibles' on these subjects are.

Thankful for any help!
