If I were a Springer-Verlag Graduate Text in Mathematics, I would be W.B.R. Lickorish's An Introduction to Knot Theory.
I am an introduction to mathematical Knot Theory; the theory of knots and links of simple closed curves in three-dimensional space. I consist of a selection of topics which graduate students have found to be a successful introduction to the field. Three distinct techniques are employed; Geometric Topology Manoeuvres, Combinatorics, and Algebraic Topology.
1. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
2. Spirited Away
3. The Lion in Winter
4. A Night at the Opera
5. City of Lost Children
EDITED: Sorry Jan, but Peter O'Toole and Katherine Hepburn trump. Conspirators of Pleasure replaced in the three spot.
* and really, with me, could it be any other way?
Seems, madam! nay it is; I know not seems.
Tis not alone my inky cloak, good mother,
Nor customary suits of solemn black,
Nor windy suspiration of forced breath,
Nor the dejected 'havior of the visage,
Together with all forms, moods, shapes of grief,
That can denote me truly: these indeed seem,
For they are actions that a man might play:
But I have that within which passeth show;
These but the trappings and the suits of woe.
Well, I wanted to do the chorus to the fourth act of Henry V, but it's been too long. I got lost in between the "like a foul and ugly witch doth limp so tediously away" line and the "little touch of Harry in the night" bit. Have to go read up. I do love that speech so.

4. Put this in your own blog so that I can do the same. (Or not, of course.)
