What are the best books on gardening and houseplants?

I’m wanting a new book or two on gardening, and one that has a bit of focus on houseplants and overwintering plants indoors. I’m also thinking about one with details on starting from seed and propagating. Which books are the most informative, with in-depth information and tips? I need something that will be useful to me in a cold climate.
Any links to good sites are also appreciated. I’m looking for a book, a hard copy, something that I can read in bed or when the internet’s out.

    “Rodale’s Illustrated Encyclopedia of Organic Gardening (Paperback)”

    I got this book a couple of weeks ago from the library and it is so helpful! I’m starting my own garden (mostly in big pots) and I’ve found this book covers pretty much everything. I really recommend it and I just checked; it’s $16.50 on amazon. After I return it to the library, I’m gonna buy it. Check it out!!

    All New Square Foot Gardening is a great book for outdoor gardening including seed starting. I also second the suggestion for Rodale’s Encyclopedia of Organic Gardening. As far as houseplants it depends what you want to grow. I think Taylor’s Guide to Houseplants is good but if you are like me and prefer growing more unusual stuff like lemons and herbs it won’t be very helpful.

    It is a good idea to find some at the library so you can look through them thoroughly and see what you think.

    Each grower needs one book which explains all things. You could try here(http://www.hydroasis.com/hy/items.aspx?id=9&item=books-magazines) some couple of books which gives you idea regarding new techniques from basic to advanced growing.
