For Ruby, I would say it's "The Well-Grounded Rubyist" (currently 2nd ed.) by David Black. Hands down the best language book I've ever read, because of the pacing, depth and completeness of the material. If you read and fully understand the book, you're way past novice state, something I don't normally say about any single book.
