It looks like I'm starting to get into higher level projects that I'm accustom to, which is fine as it gives me an excuse to buy more books. But where do I start? Looking in my pipeline of projects I see that I'm going to need to learn 

* more SQL (specificly MySQL), perticularly in the area of fancy queries (fancy to me, anyways) and stored procs. 
* an how to build a matching / search engine type app (in PHP/MySQL)... closest analogy would be like a matching engine on a dating site, but for a totally different market with totatlly different fields.

So, anyone have any book recommendations for those areas? I've gone through all the book recommendations in the archives and found a couple books that look interesting, but not quite what I think I'm looking for.
