Silamns complete endgame course
amateur mind, reassasse your chess 3 and 4
You have quite a nice selection covering a wide range of chess topics at different levels.
Given the rating you cited, I would start with the Silman books, especially the endings. Endgame study, unlike opening theory, never goes out of style, and will repay itself many, many times.
Like the last poster, I give the McDonald book high marks.
Other players may throw stones at me, but the kotov book is overrated. On teh flip side, the Tisdall book is incredibly good.
Some of the books may be "over your head" in terms of rating, but unless you experience extreme frustration reading them, I think exposure to them is not a bad thing. You can always set them a side, come back to them and see what now makes sense.
