I've seen some good online OpenGL references posted here, but what about books?  Sometimes I just want to kick back and read without having to burn my eyes on a CRT.  Any suggestions?  Please real suggestions only (no links offered simply for commission purposes).

I learned all I know from the OpenGL Reference Manual 1.2. Apart from how to make beans on toast.

I currently use the OpenGL Programming Guide 1.0 (aka "RedBook"), and a couple of graphics theory books I've got lying around.  I'm intending to pick up the latest RedBook and BlueBook (OpenGL Reference Manual) when I next get to a decent bookshop.


If you want to give it a look before spending money, nowadays you can download RedBook 1.0 from various places, including:

http://www.gamedev.net/download/redbook.pdf

Very useful is the latest OpenGL specification, which can be found here:
