I've got "The Design and Analysis of Computer Algorithms" and "Principles of Compiler Design" aka the "Dragon Book" on my shelf. 

Congrats to both!

This just came in: 

ACM has named Alfred Vaino Aho and Jeffrey David Ullman recipients of 
the 2020 ACM A. M. Turing Award 


for fundamental algorithms and theory underlying programming language 
implementation and for synthesizing these results and those of others 
in their highly influential books, which educated generations of 
computer scientists. 

Most of us probably have several of their books on the shelf; I certainly do!
