You should talk to your advisor about this, or a friend from an older cohort who's gone through this. My department had specific guidelines about the number of books, and at least some of the future examiners had lists of core books in their field they expected students to be familiar with. So yeah, ask.

Yeah, I think I'm going to talk to some of the dissertating folks to see what they put on their lists . . . but I can't seem to find anything on the department website that suggests a specific number of books . . we shall see . .

Heh. I did speak to my advisor . . . she was pretty vague. :-)
