ACC is clearly necessary -- it's the other only one that offers his viewpoint.

Other than that, a minimal list that I can see would be:
TWA, C, BiA, and MD (since Ivan is moderately important in them).

Moving off minimality, maybe TVG and M, since we do see him there.

Other books are possible, based on spoiler-hints, but none are
convincingly important.
