Number 5 is pretty, good for inspiration.

If you are interested in Cichlids, there are several books there, looks like a good introduction.

I like having hard copy (books and magazines) on hand, but I also add notes as I research the fish.
I like using the internet for current, up to date info. Even recently published books become dated pretty fast. Not that the info is wrong, but new species are being found, new varieties of plants being developed all the time.

If some of the books are older the names of the fish may have changed, so be prepared to do a little extra detective work to find the one you might like.

1,5,10,and 11 would be the books I would get. if #5 is the book I'm thinking of I've seen it retail for 40-70 dollars. so all those books for $25.00 is a good deal.
