I'll kick this off.

The ZX Spectrum ULA
How to Design A Microcomputer

Chris Smith
ZX Design and Media

My Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars
Fascinating book with detail regarding the Uncommitted Logic Array that makes a Spectrum, a Spectrum. The different rev's are discussed and the reasons for the dead cockroach and spider transistor. It describes the changes made to the ULA over the different versions of Speccy and WHY they were made! Errors made in the design over time is discussed, and a dense block of electronic detail. Love Assembly Language? Know your hardware. Read this book.
