Thanks to Zhann, whom pointed out to these 2 fine books, my wishlist got (even) longer.
1. Time management
This collection of time management tools addresses the very specific needs of embattled system administrators everywhere. Bestselling author Thomas Limoncelli shows you how to manage interruptions, eliminate timewasters, prioritize based on customer expectations, automate processes for faster execution, and much more. It’s the first step to a more productive, happier you.
2. UNIX and Linux System Administration Handbook!
This twentieth anniversary edition of the world’s best-selling UNIX system administration book has been made even better by adding coverage of the leading Linux distributions: Ubuntu, openSUSE, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

It details best practices for every facet of system administration, including storage management, network design and administration, email, web hosting, scripting, software conﬁguration management, performance analysis, Windows interoperability, virtualization, DNS, security, management of IT service organizations, and much more.
So, mom if you read this and you’d like to surprise me with something… This is it!!! You know I love you! 😉
