    I second Ashcroft and Mermin. But I am unfamiliar with recent books. I used Ashcroft and Mermin > 35 years ago

    Kittel: somewhat better for an intro, at least the chapters are self sufficient to some extent.

    Yu and Cardona is my favorite, up to date and includes all the stuff Ashcroft and Mermin do not cover.
