Yeah all of those. Not on the list above:
Housing Washington is fascinating: http://www.amazon.com/Housing-Washington-Centuries-Residential-Development/dp/1935195077
Lost Washington DC is interesting: http://www.amazon.com/Lost-Washington-D-C-History-Press/dp/1609493656/ref=pd_sim_b_2
Also, stop by Second Story books periodically, as they sometimes have interesting used books about DC. Recently I picked up an urban planning book from 1969 about alternative plans for rebuilding the three main riot-damaged corridors. And an AIA journal issue devoted to the history of the city.
