Spanish and a general cooking cookbook suggestions

I think the title basically says what I need a suggestion for. I want to get a Spanish cookbook. Tapas and entrees etc. I studied abroad in Madrid and I want a cookbook to kind of relive all the amazing food I had there.

The other cookbook I want to get would be more general. Not any type of specific regional cooking. I'm thinking Mark Peel's New Classic Family Dinners . If anyone has it and loves it please let me know, or if there is any other book like that I should be looking at.

I was at Borders the other day and there were a ton of choices, many of which I have seen featured here on SE. I don't want to spend 30 dollars without knowing if its worth it or not. I figured this would be one of the best places to get unbiased opinions and suggestions.
